Kansas/Sigma Phi Epsilon – A (former?) member of Sigma Phi Epsilon at KU has filed a civil lawsuit against the National organization, the local chapter, and two members for”permitting underage drinking that allegedly contributed to a severe head injury the student suffered at the KU chapter’s house in March 2011.” He was drinking at an off-site chapter party, and when he was home in bed, he was rustled awake by the two members and ended up having his head slammed against a wall, sustaining a “massive closed head injury.”
Update – Florida A&M/Delta Sigma Theta – Local authorities declined to file criminal charges related to hazing allegations from an incident in February. Nine members, and the chapter, were suspended by the University earlier this month.
Update – Central Florida Investigations – The campus newspaper, The Knight News, is in the process of looking through information received from a freedom of information request, and discovered that the Lambda Chi Alpha chapter has been suspended for hazing. The newspaper indicates that it expects to find more concerns as it works through the files. The wide-spread issues, and the institution’s response, at UCF are worth watching.
Update – Florida Atlantic/Pi Kappa Alpha – Pike has expelled an undisclosed number of members after they assaulted a young man who had decided not to join the fraternity. The incident happened in February at an off-campus night club.
