Lawsuit blames sorority in death of Northwestern athlete

CHICAGO — The mother of a Northwestern University woman’s basketball player who died in 2017 has sued a sorority claiming hazing by its members led to her suicide.

Felicia Hankins says the hazing of Jordan Hankins by members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority caused severe anxiety and depression and led to her death in January 2017.

In addition to Chicago-based Alpha Kappa Alpha, the lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago names the Gamma Chi undergraduate chapter of the sorority at Northwestern; the Delta Chi Omega graduate chapter of the sorority and sorority executives.

I've thought quite a bit about this. Is anyone aware of a plaintiff's verdict or settlement in a case involving a suicide? I'd be surprised if hazing or bullying or anything along those lines could be found to be the proximate cause of the death.
