Parents File Wrongful Death Suit against Fraternity in Kansas Alcohol Poisoning Case

Binge drinking on American college campuses has long been recognized as a rampant public safety issue, but some schools and student organizations still seem to have failed to implement appropriate prevention measures. In one recent tragedy, 19-year-old Kansas University student, Jason Wren, was found dead in his room at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house. In the wrongful death suit filed by Wren's parents, it was claimed that the fraternity, several fraternity members, and university officials negligently failed to incorporate stringent rules and oversight measures designed to prevent underage drinking and encourage responsible alcohol consumption. The Wren family is seeking more than $75,000 in damages in the case.
