Bethune-Cookman University Faces Hazing Lawsuit

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the mother of a Bethune-Cookman University student who died in a car crash last year has alleged in a lawsuit against the school and a national fraternity that hazing caused his death. According to the filing, Marcus A. Thomas, 19, was killed after another pledge fell asleep at the wheel and the car crashed into a utility pole. The lawsuit alleges Thomas and others were intentionally sleep-deprived for three weeks as pledges of the Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia fraternity.
