Gloria Allred calls report into Syracuse University investigation "a complete whitewash"

The lawyer for a man who accused Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of sexual abuse says a report into the university's investigation of the claim is "a complete whitewash."
Among other things, Bobby Davis' lawyer says the report issued last week by a special committee failed to criticize that 2005 probe as biased because it was conducted by the university's longtime law firm.
Gloria Allred also says the conclusion that there was no attempt to cover up the allegations doesn't "pass the laugh test."
Davis, now 41, claims Fine molested him beginning when he was around 12 years old.
Fine was fired in November after the allegations were made public. He has not been charged and denies the accusations.
There was no immediate response from the university or the law firm that prepared the report.
