— The hearing date for three players charged in the Duke lacrosse rape case has been moved up.

The hearing has been changed from Thursday, July 20 to Monday, July 17 at 2:30 p.m. Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty and David Evans have been charged with rape and kidnapping during an off-campus party in March. Those players do not have to appear in court for the hearing.

Another hearing involving members of the Duke lacrosse team will take place Monday.

Lawyers will be in court to argue that District Attorney Mike Nifong should not be given personal information regarding players who were not charged in the case.

Nifong had asked to get the players' home addresses, along with information from their Duke University access passes.
