A fraternity is suing Miami University for $10 Million for a wrongful suspension, according to The Associated Press.
Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity, founded on the university’s campus on March 17, 1906, was suspended after the fraternity engaged in a fireworks battle with fellow fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon on Aug. 19. Police also discovered marijuana on the fraternity’s premises.
The fraternity filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati, OH. The suit says university officials acted with “malice, hatred and ill will” by suspending them.
University spokeswoman Claire Wagner said the school acted in the best interest of student safety and followed policy, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
