The AP Reports that Fired Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine has filed the initial paperwork in a defamation lawsuit against ESPN for reporting two former ball boys' claims that the longtime coach sexually abused them.

A yearlong federal investigation that followed accusations that Fine abused team ball boys ended with no charges. Fine was Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim's assistant for 35 seasons.

ESPN reported the allegations on Nov. 17, 2011. Fine was fired 10 days later when a third man made similar claims.
