Short article on fraternity houses and hazing

Almost a year ago I reported that the Illinois Supreme Court had granted review on a case that asked whether the officers, pledge board members of a fraternity or the fraternity itself should be liable for the death of a student who died while participating in a social event at a college fraternity.  Since then other similar incidents have been reported in other states.  

I am coming back to this topic today because I just saw that Prof. Gregory Parks (Wake Forest) has a short article in The Huffington Post about the tort duties of fraternities and sororities with regard to hazing.

Thanks to the TortsProf blog for the link.
