Nevada Cases

The Fierberg National Law Group represented a family in lawsuit against local and national fraternity arising out of the hazing and drowning death of a freshman student at University of Nevada-Reno.  As part of the fraternity’s initiation process, pledges were instructed to swim late at night in a lake on school grounds, following an evening of compelled binge drinking.  The national fraternity vigorously denied liability and sought to have the action against it dismissed on legal grounds.  The evidence we developed resulted in the denial of its motion and the case settled shortly therafter for a confidential substantial sum.
