Family Considers Suing Fraternity After Plane Crash
Micah Kamrass, Manley Burke, firstname.lastname@example.org
On August 25, 2014, a small plane carrying four Case Western Reserve University students crashed shortly after taking off in Cleveland Ohio. All four passengers, including two members of Zeta Beta Tau were killed in the crash. Now, the family representing the estate of Abraham Pishevar, one of the victims who was not a member of the fraternity, is considering suing the national fraternity and local chapter of Zeta Beta Tau. Pishevar had previously told friends and family that he was in the process of rushing the fraternity. In a petition for discovery, Pishevar’s estate requested information seeking to prove that the flight was part of the fraternity’s recruitment. The fraternity has already released a statement denying a connection between the flight and recruitment activities. Fraternal Law will continue to monitor this issue.
