Boeheim decision not expected for two weeks

By WKTV News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP)- A judge says he expects to announce a decision in two weeks after hearing arguments on a motion to
dismiss a defamation lawsuit against Syracuse University and men's
basketball coach Jim Boeheim.

Former team ballboys Bobby Davis and Mike Lang claim Boeheim
slandered them when he said they were out for money by claiming
former assistant coach Bernie Fine sexually abused them.

Boeheim wasn't at the hearing Friday where a lawyer for the men
said the dismissal motion was baseless.

Boeheim's lawyer cited the coach's constitutional right to
express his opinions.

Boeheim called Davis a liar and opportunist looking to exploit
publicity surrounding the Penn State sex-abuse scandal when the
allegations surfaced in November. He later apologized.

Fine has denied wrongdoing and hasn't been charged. He was fired
in November.
