Insurer Says Duke Left Them in the Dark

Duke actually didn’t talk to someone about this case? Amazing! I thought Duke’s spokesperson talked to everyone.

Duke Insurer: Left in the dark, shouldn’t have to pay

Duke University’s insurer says it should not have pay for a settlement with three Duke lacrosse players.

A local news paper reports that National Union Fire Insurance Company filed court papers that said campus leaders did not tell them about the settlement, which is in violation of their contract.

Duke University is suing the insurance company for failing to cover the costs of its out-of-court settlement with the three players who were found to be falsely accused of rape.

The university says it was barred from disclosing information, because of the settlement’s confidentiality clause.

Last June, Duke reached an undisclosed financial settlement with the three former lacrosse players.

The players and their families piled up millions of dollars in legal expenses defending themselves. They later settled with the university.
