DURHAM, N.C. – A federal judge is dismissing a lawsuit filed after the son of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was dismissed from the Duke golf team.

Andrew Giuliani won the Met Open in August 2009 for his first title as a professional.

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.
