LSU Lawsuit- LSU Tougher on Sororities than Fraternities

A lawsuit coming out of the Max Gruver hazing death case alleges that LSU is tougher on sororities when accused of hazing than fraternities that are accused. The claim is that this leads to tougher hazing in LSU fraternities.

This is fascinating! I would never have predicted that Title IX would be applied in this way.

As I was reading, I thought, "If this is the case they're presenting, I assume they're going to need examples of how the sororities were punished more severely." And there it was.

I wonder if there are other instances of harsher punishment for the women.

One alleged 2016 incident involving Gruver’s fraternity, in which members allegedly admitted to hazing, resulted in the organization being placed on interim suspension for a month.

The lawsuit contrasts that punishment with punishment against a sorority accused of hazing its pledges by making them sing songs, do sit-ups, and putting whipped cream, syrup, and eggs in their hair.

That sorority was given “Total Probation” by LSU — the most severe sanction LSU can impose, short of rescinding its recognition of the sorority.
Also, I wish there were more details regarding this aspect of the lawsuit. Are hazing allegations solely investigated by members of the Greek councils at LSU?

The lawsuit also critiques LSU for allegedly allowing members of Greek letter organizations to perform investigations into the allegations against their own organizations.

LSU does not allow other students or student organizations to investigate themselves following allegations of dangerous or illegal misconduct or policy violations, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit says this creates a culture where LSU knowingly allows Greek letter organizations to submit lies about the information they discovered during internal investigations.
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose

It’s true everywhere. “Boys will be boys” extends to this, as well.
