Brian DeJoseph, Onondaga County State Supreme Court judge, ruled that the Bobby Davis and Mike Lang's defamation suit against Jim Boeheim and Syracuse University will have to be held in Onondaga County.
In his ruling, he stated the attorneys for Davis and Lang failed to prove that an unbiased jury could not be found in Onondaga County.
Gloria Allred, one of the attorneys representing the two stepbrothers, originally filed suit in New York County December 30. On January 17, Boeheim's defense filed for the case to be moved to Onondaga County, citing that none of the parties to the case live in New York County.
Allred and her team of attorneys, including Mariann Wang, made arguments that some former players might live in New York County, but the argument was unsuccessful in New York City and in Syracuse.
Allred told the Post-Standard via email that her team reviewed DeJoseph's decision and does not plan to appeal at this time.
