Grieving Family Settles Personal Injury Lawsuit

Posted under Uncategorized

Jack Phoumarrath died of alcohol poisoning on December 10, 2005 while undergoing hazing from the Lambda Phi Epsilon fraternity at the University of Texas. Today his family received a settlement of $4 million. They plan to use the money to establish a scholarship named after Phoumarrath at the university, which would allow the student who wins it to attend classes while working on a program to address the issue of binge drinking on campus. Phoumarrath’s family also plans to release a video for college students outlining the dangers of excessive drinking.
