Law - "Fraternities and Lawsuits"

Post by the State Bar of Michigan Blog (SBMblog); includes reference to the Feb. 13th Indiana Supreme Court Wabash College hazing opinion, and Tim Evans Feb. 23rd coverage in the Indianapolis Star, which begins:

The Indiana Supreme Court has ruled that a former Wabash College student can move forward with a lawsuit against the fraternity where he was seriously injured during a night of horseplay that may have crossed into hazing.

The ruling sets the stage for what could be the first Indiana trial to address a fraternity’s civil liability in connection with alleged hazing.
