DALLAS (AP) - The attorney for a New York jeweler suing a former Duke basketball player over a debt incurred while the player was in school says a settlement has been reached in the case.
Mike Bowers says the terms of the settlement between Rafaello & Co. and former Duke forward Lance Thomas are confidential. The lawsuit, filed in Austin, Texas, in January, said Thomas owed $67,800 for jewelry he purchased at a cost of $97,800 in the middle of the 2009-2010 season.
Duke won the NCAA title that season, and the purchase raised questions of whether Thomas, then a senior, violated amateurism rules.
Bowers says the settlement doesn't change his client's unwillingness to discuss the lawsuit with the NCAA.
