The Duke Lacrosse Scandal: New Insights, Many Perspectives
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n19 pA29 Jan 2009
An African-American stripper's false accusation of rape against three white Duke University lacrosse players in 2006--and the overzealous prosecution that followed--ultimately exposed prosecutorial misconduct, a rush to judgment, and simmering tensions of class, race, privilege, and gender. Michael L. Seigel, a professor of law at the University of Florida, has edited "Race to Injustice: Lessons Learned From the Duke Lacrosse Rape Case," a new compilation of essays that review the case from a wide variety of perspectives: legal, academic, racial, sexual, and others. This article presents an interview in which Michael L. Seigel talks about his book, published this month by Carolina Academic Press.
