A rowdy party, booze, boys, and a stripper-and after a wild night of living it up, charges of assault and rape were leveled at certain members of the Duke lacrosse team. When the district attorney brought charges, it seemed like an easy verdict. Few suspected then that this national blockbuster of a news story was all based on lies. Seasoned trial attorney Nader Baydoun deconstructs the case and reveals the egregious misconduct that led to a rush to judgment and a gross injustice. By presenting the evidence with a trained eye for detail, Baydoun exposes the political pandering of the district attorney, his neglect of crucial evidence, the way in which he stacked the case against the innocent suspects, and how he tenaciously believed unreliable victim testimony-all to ensure his reelection. Baydoun also takes the university leadership to task for its failure to support the students in the case. In this gripping tale of injustice, Baydoun sets the record straight and points the way to justice for the real victims.Baydoun, Nader is the author of 'Rush to Injustice How Power, Prejudice, Racism, and a Tidal Wave of Political Correctness Overshadowed Truth and Justice', published 2007 under ISBN 9781595551184 and ISBN 1595551182.
