Ball boys to court: Reinstate Boeheim slander suit

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Two former Syracuse University ball boys urged the state's highest court Tuesday to reinstate their slander lawsuit against basketball head coach Jim Boeheim.

Bobby Davis and Mike Lang claim Boeheim slandered them in 2011 by calling them liars out for money when they accused his longtime assistant coach Bernie Fine of molesting them as children.

A judge dismissed the suit last year, ruling Boeheim's comments were not assertions of fact but opinions protected from defamation lawsuits. A midlevel court, divided 3-2, affirmed that ruling.
