Syracuse, NY (WIBX): The defamation case involving Syracuse University head basketball coach Jim Boeheim will be moved to Syracuse.

According to the Huffington Post, a judge ruled today to move the case from New York County to Onondaga County.

The two plantiffs in the case, Bobby Davis and Mike Lang, were denied motion to retain the case in New York County after filing the defamation lawsuit in New York City.

Davis and Lang filed the lawsuit claiming Boeheim slandered them saying they were out for money after allegations of abuse surfaced surrounding former assistant head coach Bernie Fine.

Lawyers for both plantiffs argued moving the venue would give Boeheim the upper hand and allow him to have a fair trial due to the fact he is a local celebrity in the city of Syracuse.

Lawyers for both Syracuse University and Jim Boeheim requested the change of venue due to the fact Boeheim, Davis, and Lang all live in Syracuse.
