Supreme Court Won't Hear Case Connected to Duke Lacrosse Rape Trial

Players wanted courts to determine their rights had been violated

|

The Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from three former Duke University lacrosse players who were among those falsely accused of raping a stripper.

The players, Ryan McFadyen, Matthew Wilson and Breck Archer, wanted the court to say their constitutional rights were violated by the Durham, N.C., police when officers made them give DNA samples and examined their bodies in an attempt to find evidence to use against them.
