A court case involving several Mercyhurst University basketball players accused of attacking other students is thrown out.

Charges were withdrawn against ten people who were involved in a fight on Mercyhurst North East's campus.

The hearing did not move forward because the victim did not show up in court today.

The ten students were initially facing simple assault, disorderly conduct and conspiracy charges.

Nine of the people accused in this attack are basketball players at the university.

Police say the students attacked a man and two women during the alleged altercation back in January.

The victims were also students.

Three of the accused are still facing underage drinking charges.
