It's A Start

But it's not enough:
Eight years after Durham police arrested three Duke University lacrosse players on sexual assault charges that were later determined to be unfounded, the city and the Durham Police Department have settled a lawsuit with the players.

Under terms of the settlement, Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and Dave Evans will receive no money. Instead, the city will make a $50,000 grant to the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission.
I hope there's still a suit going against the university. Which level of government did Nifong work for? Sovereign immunity shouldn’t protect those who knowingly violate rights.
