HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH)– A Quinnipiac student will remain suspended from the university as part of a hazing investigation, according to court documents.
According to a lawsuit filed in January, sophomore John Demoulas was suspended in November for his alleged involvement of hazing of new members of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity, telling them via text messages to clean up some vomit in his dorm room. He was suspended by the university for the spring semester.
Demoulas claims in his lawsuit filed against the university that his case was handled unfairly. He filed for a temporary injunction which would allow him to return to campus sooner, which was recently denied.
The judge overhearing the case ruled since Demoulas declined a continuance of his student code of conduct hearing in December, he didn’t have a lack of notice about suspension as he claimed in the lawsuit.
