The Easton Patch is reporting that Lafayatte College was within its rights to keep Chi Phi fraternity from returning to campus. The Express-Times has a few more details, but we will need to read the judge’s decision to get a better understanding of how he interpreted the case.
Update on Friday: The Chi Phi, Rho Chapter, Alumni Association has posted their reaction to the decision. They also have a link to get the full decision. Here is the link to the Morning Call article from today.
I will have a new post with some of my thoughts as I get a chance to read these documents.
Updated on Thursday – Here is the article from The Laf (student newspaper). It doesn’t cover much new ground from the earlier articles. However, I did get a kick out of this paragraph:
“It is the college’s policy not to comment on matters in litigation,” spokesperson for the college Roger Clow said. “I will add only that the college is pleased that the court affirmed the responsibility and right of the Board of Trustees to determine which student organizations are recognized on its campus and the right of the college to assign students to campus housing in accordance with that determination.”
If it is your policy not to comment, then don’t make a comment.
