Joseph G. "Bodie" Finnerty Jr., a highly regarded trial lawyer who headed DLA Piper's litigation department and oversaw expansion of the firm to Philadelphia and New York City, died Thursday of Alzheimer's disease at Copper Ridge assisted-living facility in Sykesville. The former longtime Guilford resident was 76. "Joe was an outstanding lawyer and was the firm's heavy lifter and go-to guy. It is no wonder that he became its top litigator," said J. Joseph Curran Jr., former Maryland attorney general.

Collin Finnerty, one of three former Duke lacrosse players falsely accused last year of raping an exotic dancer at a team party, could end up in a Loyola College uniform. Sources at Loyola confirmed that the school is pursuing Finnerty and could receive a commitment soon from the 6-feet-3, 175-pound attackman out of Chaminade High School in Garden City, N.Y. All charges against Finnerty and ex-Duke players David Evans and Reade Seligmann were dropped last month. The incident led to the cancellation of Duke's 2006 season after eight games, and to the resignation of 16-year coach Mike Pressler, who is now coaching at Division II Bryant University in Smithfield, R.I. Finnerty, who has two years of eligibility remaining, appeared in five games last year and had two goals and one assist.

WASHINGTON -- A deal that allowed one of two Duke University lacrosse players charged with raping a stripper to avoid a trial in an unrelated assault case was revoked yesterday in D.C. Superior Court, and a tentative trial date was set. Collin Finnerty, 19, was arrested and charged with simple assault in November, after a fight broke out outside a Georgetown bar. The alleged victim told police that Finnerty and two friends had taunted then beat him....

DURHAM, N.C. --Loyola attackman Collin Finnerty found positive parts of his return to Duke for yesterday's NCAA tournament game. But overall it was a disappointing end to the season for the Greyhounds, who lost, 12-7, in the first-round game at Koskinen Stadium. "We were trying to get back to what we had success with in the first quarter," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said. "It just kind of got away from us." Loyola's season ended with three consecutive losses. Finnerty, who was one of the Duke players falsely accused in the highly publicized 2006 rape case, made his first game appearance on his former home field.

Say you were an empty Doritos bag, dropped in the street in the outskirts of the city. The first heavy rain would send you on your way: along the gutter, down the nearest storm drain and through miles of twisting concrete pipe until, at last, you were flushed out - either into the Inner Harbor, or a stream that would lead you there. And that is where you'd meet Joe Finnerty. Casually working a series of throttles and levers, he would pilot his slow-moving vessel toward you. Its mechanical arms would spread, as if preparing to embrace you. Its angled conveyor belt would dip into the water, slowly carrying you up, until you fell through a few feet of air and landed, most indecorously, into the pile of glop he's already snagged - a reeking heap that might include plastic pop bottles, foam containers, errant Frisbees, tree limbs, diapers, gum wrappers, tires, cigarette butts and the occasional bloated animal carcass.

The Loyola Greyhounds did so many things right Saturday against Notre Dame in the Face-Off Classic. They took away easy scoring opportunities from the Fighting Irish, they forced them to shoot with a weak hand more often than not, they counter-punched when Notre Dame had all the momentum, and they frustrated and hounded midfielder Zach Brenneman, one of the best players in the country. But superior talent has a habit of wiping away both the sins and the sloppy play of the victor, and that's exactly what happened at M&T Bank Stadium.

Collin Finnerty had a career-high five goals and the Loyola men's lacrosse team used a pair of 4-0 runs in the second half to beat Bellarmine, 14-8, on Wednesday in Louisville, Ky. The 10th-ranked Greyhounds (3-0, 2-0 Eastern College Athletic Conference) outscored the Knights 11-4 in the second half. After trailing 5-4 at halftime, Loyola scored less than three minutes into the second half on a goal by Finnerty, starting the run. Patrick Fanshaw and Eric Lusby added goals for the Greyhounds during the next two minutes, and Finnerty scored again with 10:13 remaining to cap the stretch with Loyola on top 7-4.

The Towson-Loyola game lived up to expectations. The Greyhounds looked like a team that could make a run in the postseason, and the Tigers looked like a team trying to rebuild. No. 16 Loyola held on for an 11-8 victory before an announced 2,436 at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field in a game that wasn't as close as the score indicated. The Greyhounds (1-1) dominated for three quarters, and No. 20 Towson (0-1) had no answer for Loyola junior attackman Collin Finnerty, or the Greyhounds' superior talent at midfield.

In April 2006, Duke lacrosse player Collin Finnerty, looking pale and dazed, was marched into a wood-paneled North Carolina courtroom to be formally accused of raping an exotic dancer at a team party. Two years later, Finnerty - vindicated along with two teammates - is proving there is life after the Duke lacrosse case, one of the nation's most infamous criminal prosecutions. Seeking distance from the now-discredited case, Finnerty, 21, transferred last year to Loyola, where he is fervently trying to keep a low profile, according to those who know him. But Loyola's schedule wouldn't completely allow Finnerty a fresh start or a respite from media attention, at least not yet. That's because yesterday Loyola played Duke, the school Finnerty departed with so many mixed emotions.

Loyola doesn't need to look far for evidence that it can compete with No. 2 Duke, which comes to town today undefeated and leading the nation in scoring offense. The precedent was set last year, when the Greyhounds scored twice in the last two minutes to beat the Blue Devils, 8-7, on a neutral field in San Diego. Duke had entered the game No. 1. "It was our best game, and it kind of took us on a little bit of a run," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said yesterday. The game came amid a five-game Greyhounds winning streak.

With Kyle Boller missing a second straight day with a concussion, quarterback Troy Smith will make his first NFL start Sunday, becoming the latest young player to be forced into the lineup. The sixth rookie to start for the Ravens this season, Smith will take over the offense after quarterbacking four series in the NFL. "He's as ready as you're going to be as a rookie," coach Brian Billick said. "One thing I don't worry about is that he has a strong personality. You worry what happens if things get ugly with him and pressures ... but he will fight through whatever happens.

Collin Finnerty is getting a fresh start. Three months after he and two former Duke lacrosse teammates were declared innocent of sexual assault charges, Finnerty formalized his decision yesterday to transfer to Loyola. The Baltimore school said it would ask the NCAA for a ruling to ensure that Finnerty, who sat out the 2007 season while his case was investigated, receives an extra year of eligibility allowing him to play three years for the Greyhounds. The NCAA had already granted an extra year of eligibility to the 33 Duke lacrosse team members whose 2006 season was canceled in the wake of rape allegations.
