Lacrosse Attorneys To Discuss Civil Suit With Durham

City officials will hold a closed meeting with the Durham City Council today about a meeting with lawyers for three former Duke lacrosse players falsely accused of rape.

City officials won't comment on yesterday's meeting, which was likely held to discuss a possible civil lawsuit.

A special committee probing the Durham Police Department's handling of the Duke lacrosse case stopped its work last month. That came after the city's liability insurance provider warned that findings could provide material for civil lawsuits.

State prosecutors dismissed all charges against the three players earlier this year.
