How Awful to Be Hounded…Have Your World Upset

…by an ‘unfounded claim.

A former Duke University men’s lacrosse coach has sued the university after resigning earlier this year under the pressure of allegations that three of his players raped a stripper, school officials said Friday.
Mike Pressler’s lawsuit apparently stems from a financial settlement the school reached earlier this year with Pressler, although school officials did not give details.
“Mr. Pressler, aided by his attorney, reached a fair and final financial agreement with Duke University in the spring of 2007,” Pamela Bernard, Duke’s vice president and general counsel, said in a statement. “We are disappointed that he is now trying to undo that agreement with an unfounded claim against Duke.”

Ah. Irony so dee-licious, I could eat a bowl full.

    Chances are, Duke didn’t live up to its side of the settlement and that’s why Pressler is suing. More power to him, I say.

    Love it. He signed a ND, apparently, specifying no bad remarks from either party but the whacademic community just couldn’t resist some smarmy crap-talk. So now he gets paid, big time.
    Suck on it, Duke!
