Foltz Family Dismisses All Claims Against Pi Kappa Alpha

Here in Fraternal Law, we have previously reported a couple of different times about the civil lawsuit and criminal charges that arose from the tragic hazing death of Stone Foltz, a former student at Bowling Green State University. Now there is one additional important development to share. While the civil litigation remains underway, the Estate of Stone Foltz as the Plaintiff arrived at a mutually agreeable resolution to the case with the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity, the Delta Beta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha, and with the Chapter’s volunteer advisor. As a result, the Plaintiff dismissed all of its claims against those three parties on December 9, 2021. The civil lawsuit remains in a relatively early stage with new individual defendants added to the case recently. While there will no longer be claims by the Plaintiff against any of the aforementioned parties, we will continue to report on how the litigation against the remaining individual defendants unfolds.
