of Texas, died from alcohol poisoning
in what was described by his family as a hazing
incident. Three former leaders of the chapter pled no contest. A settlement was reached
with the fraternity for 4.2 million. The fraternity organization did not have insurance, and was unable to pay the entire settlement.
In 2013 Lambda Phi Epsilon was banned from
San Francisco State University
after the death of 18 year old pledge Peter
Tran. The University
determined that the death was alcohol
$4.2 MILLION? Have you no shame?
