Media giant ESPN target of lawsuit by Laurie Fine
Wednesday, 16 May 2012 13:22


Laurie Fine will file a lawsuit n federal court accusing ESPN and two of its employees of libel.  Fine's suit accuses the network of breaking the story of Bobby Davis'  allegations of sexual abuse against her husband, former assistant basketball coach of Bernie Fine without any credible corroborating sources. "This Complaint for Libel arises from Defendant ESPN’s coverage of Robert Davis’ uncorroborated attack upon Plaintiff Laurie J. Fine. Through this coverage, ESPN, acting by and through its agents and employees, including Defendants Mark Schwarz and Arthur Berko, spitefully destroyed Laurie Fine’s reputation in an attempt to capitalize financially in the tragic wake of the Penn State Sex Abuse Scandal. Defendants have ruined Laurie Fine’s reputation by maliciously publishing false and defamatory factual accusations."

In the lawsuit document Fine flatly denies ever knowing of or suspecting her husband of molesting Davis or any other person.  She also denies Davis' claim that she had a sexual relationship with him or Davis claim that she had sexual relationships with several former Syracuse University basketball players.

Local media promise extended coverage with local television outlets planning to carry the news conference live on their secondary digital channels and on their websites, and feeding national media with the story.  ESPN responded claiming the  suit is without merit an the network  stand behind its story.
