Fraternity says it got the bum’s rush at GMU

The brothers of Sigma Chi told a 4th Circuit panel yesterday their fraternity was kicked off campus without due process.

The fraternity’s lawyer, Christopher Aldo Porco, described the university’s disciplinary proceeding as “reminiscent of the kangaroo court that expelled the fictional Deltas in the movie ‘Animal House,'” according to an AP story published by WJLA.

The university withdrew recognition of the chapter for at least 10 years due to allegations of sexual assault, hazing and providing alcohol to minors.

Porco argued that the entire chapter of Sigma Chi was held responsible for the misdeeds of a couple of members without being given a chance to question the accusers.
