Lacrosse Case a Learning Tool for Lawyers

Lawyers in North Carolina are trying to learn some lessons from the botched prosecution of three Duke lacrosse players who were falsely accused of sexually assaulting an exotic dancer.

This week, some lawyers attended a professional development panel to understand how the rush to judgment happened and what they can do to prevent something similar from happening in the future.

Rusty Jacobs reports from North Carolina Public Radio.
