Middle Tennessee State University has gone to court to obtain a subpoena which has been sent to the national offices of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Inc. The subpoena seeks information about alleged hazing at the Theta Iota Chapter at MTSU.
After a report on the Fraternity’s hotline of alleged hazing, the Fraternity revoked the Chapter’s charter. The MTSU Police Chief was quoted as saying that they were investigating the matter to determine whether or not criminal charges should be brought.
The subpoena was issued by a Rutherford County, Tennessee County Judge, but served on the Virginia-based Fraternity’s National Office. That creates complications as to the validity of the subpoena in Virginia, where the Tennessee court has no jurisdiction.
