GREENSBORO (AP) -- Three current and former Duke lacrosse players that were not indicted in the discredited rape case are suing the university, the prosecutor and others involved in the case. Ryan McFadyen, Matthew Wilson and Breck Archer filed the 389-page federal lawsuit Monday. The players argue that the dozens of defendants named in the suit conspired to pursue the case despite evidence that the rape allegations were false. The players accuse Duke University, former Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong, the City of Durham and others of inflicting emotional distress, negligence and fraud. The three players who were falsely charged filed a sweeping federal lawsuit in October against Nifong, the city and police investigators. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press.
