Bennett, Terrance v. Tau Kappa Epsilon, et al

Year after year, TKE's flawed oversight allowed dangerous hazing practices, such as what Terrance Bennett endured, to go on. We sought justice and won a confidential amount for Mr. Bennett.

For decades, TKE, like most fraternities in the Greek industry, willfully, wantonly, and consciously disregarded known dangers and refused to make meaningful changes to its flawed risk-management policies and practices. As a result, Bennett, like many others, became another victim of frat hazing - suffering “severe and life-altering” physical, emotional, social and educational damages.
