WINSTON-SALEM -- U.S. District Court Judge James Beaty Jr. on Tuesday denied a motion for sanctions filed by Duke University and the City of Durham and ruled that the legal team for 38 members of the 2005-06 Duke lacrosse team had not violated ethical rules by using a Web site, news conference and news release to publicize the filing of their case.

The players have filed a civil rights lawsuit against Duke and the city, demanding reparations arising from the since dismissed Duke lacrosse sexual offense case.

Beaty also ruled, however, that the content published on that Web site -- DukeLawsuit-- and any links from it are the responsibility of the defense team. Herald-Sun
