Parents of LSU Student, Max Gruver, Who Died After Hazing Are Awarded $6.1 Million

The parents of a Louisiana State University student, Max Gruver, who died in 2017 after an on-campus hazing event have been awarded $6.1 million by a jury in Baton Rouge, La., according to the family’s lawyer, TFNLG attorney, Jonathon Fazzola. “Although the verdict does not — and cannot ever — repair that loss, it is another important step in our mission to end hazing,” they added in a statement provided by Mr. Fazzola. “We are grateful that the jury understood that Max and his pledge brothers had no real choice and were not at fault for the hell they had to endure. And, significantly, through its verdict, the jury put to rest the notion that merely being a bystander to hazing absolves a fraternity member of responsibility.”
