Laurie Fine responds to Davis affidavit

Davis accuses Fine of sexual relations with SU basketball players.


Bobby Davis's affidavit in his defamation suit against Syracuse University and Jim Boeheim alleges that Laurie Fine had sexual relations with SU basketball players.
The complaint was announced on December 13, 2011 under the official title Bobby Davis and Michael Lang v. James Boeheim and Syracuse University. Edward Menkin, Fine's lawyer, responded to the allegations on Tuesday. 
"This is both desperate and dsigusting, an example of a lawyer flailing about to keep a dying lawsuit in the public eye," Menkin told The Post-Standard.


The affidavit alleges that Boeheim and the University should have been aware of this misconduct in addition to the sexual assault allegations directed at Bernie Fine. Shortly after Davis and his step-brother, Mike Lang, publicized their allegations, Boeheim defended his long-time friend and assistant, saying that the accusations were about money.


In the affidavit, Davis states that "players used to joke openly ... that Laurie Fine 'gave good head' and was great in bed."


Gloria Allred, Lang and Davis's attorney in the case, could not be reached at the time of publication.


Syracuse University Vice President, Kevin Quinn is handling the issue for the school." Wewill respond to the plaintiff's lawsuit and their various allegations at the appropriate time," Quinn said via email.
