Former Duke Players Cleared of All Charges

“In this case, the inconsistencies were so significant and so contrary to the evidence that we have no credible evidence that an attack occurred in that house on that night,” he said.
The decision brings to an end a 13-month ordeal for the young men, two of whom were dismissed from Duke because of the charges.
