Wrongful Death / Fraternity Hazing

01/19/1995 - Confidential

Harris v. Unnamed Fraternity, et al., State Court of Cobb County, Georgia. A 19-year-old college student died as a result of being hazed by members of a fraternity in which the victim sought membership. Suit was brought against the fraternity’s, national and local chapters, the college, and the individual members involved. In addition to the monetary recovery, the fraternity took significant remedial action as a condition of settlement to prevent the opportunity for further hazing of prospective members throughout the U.S.

I was in a complex premises liability case involving a multinational corporations. Mr. Butler & his associates were always three steps ahead of these defendants. When they say they are "exceptional trial lawyers," this is not just a slogan but it is a way of life.”
