Statement on Duke Men's Lacrosse Team

John F. Burness, senior vice president for public affairs and government relations

Yesterday, 46 Duke University undergraduates who are members of the men's lacrosse team responded to a legal order from Durham authorities and traveled downtown to be photographed and provide identifying information. The authorities made the request in connection with an investigation of an alleged incident on March 14 at 610 Buchanan St. in Durham. Duke University is monitoring the situation and cooperating with officials, as are the students.
