Alcohol Death At Frat House Spurs Lawsuit

Posted: 9:20 am PDT April 17, 2007        Top of  page                  Article

Reported that Danny Ray Daniels' family sued California State University, Fresno, and the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity for wrongful death.  "The parents claim their son was induced or forced to drink "massive quantities of alcohol" as part of fraternity hazing. Months earlier, he had gotten drunk and fell out of an upper-story window at the fraternity house, the lawsuit claims.  The Daniels' charge Fresno State with not doing enough to prevent hazing and drinking at fraternities.  The university banned Phi Gamma Delta for five years after the school's investigation into the incident."

Wahlberg sanction was to attend a $30 alcohol safety class he would seek an appeal.
