PITTSBURGH, April 1 (UPI) -- Former Duquesne University basketball player Shawn James, shot at a school dance in 2006, cannot recover damages from the school, a judge ruled.

James, of New York, sued to have the university pay for pain and loss of income caused by the shooting at the event, sponsored by the school's Black Student Union. He was shot in the foot, and recovered by 2009 to the extent he was playing professional basketball in Israel, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday.

U.S. District Judge David S. Cercone, in granting Duquesne's motion for summary judgment Saturday, ending the case, noted the school provided security at the dance, and met all its legal obligations.
