U.S. District Judge William Osteen Jr. said in an order Tuesday that the offers used to lure Andrew Giuliani to the school did not constitute an enforceable contract. A magistrate judge had also recommended dismissal of the case last year.
Giuliani had argued that a former golf coach had promised him an opportunity to compete and a right to access Duke’s athletic facilities. He alleged that Duke’s golf coach manufactured accusations against him to justify kicking him off the team in 2008, when he was a junior.
An attorney for Giuliani didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
