Thirty-eight former lacrosse players have filed suit against Duke University for "emotional distress and other injuries" caused by the infamous rape allegations in 2006, the Chronicle reports.

"We will seek recovery for the treatment—the really shameful treatment—that the players received throughout the ordeal," the players' lawyer said.

The school is already addressing two other civil suits, one by three other unindicted players and another from the team's former coach. The three formally indicted players settled with Duke for an undisclosed amount in June 2007.
