Penn State Hazing Whistleblower Case Update: Kappa Delta Rho Fraternity Inspection Noon, Wednesday, August 26th

Tags : 

State College, PA (August 24, 2015) – Penn State Hazing Whistleblower James Vivenzio will participate in the premises inspection of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity house at noon, Wednesday, August 26, 2015, according to Freiwald Law, P.C., which represents the former fraternity member and moving force behind the hazing prevention and campus safety advocacy website www.endhazingnow.com.

Aaron J. Freiwald, Mr. Vivenzio’s lead attorney in the civil action (Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, April Term, 2015 No. 001671) said that attorneys for the defendants will also be present as his client conducts a videotaped walk through of certain areas, starting in the basement, of the building located at 420 E. Prospect Ave., State College. He explained that lawyers for Zeta Alumni of Kappa Delta Rho, a group of KDR alumni that own the building, limited the scope of the inspection to the basement and first-floor common rooms. They also rejected requests to allow members of the news media to cover the inspection.

“We will have an opportunity to view first-hand, with Mr. Vivenzio present, the exact locations where he was brutally hazed over a period of months,” Mr. Freiwald said. “It was imperative that the inspection take place this week, we were told, as the KDR alumni owners are leasing the property to another fraternity at Penn State.”

Since the Defendant has refused to permit members of the media inside the fraternity house, Mr. Freiwald said he and Mr. Vivenzio expect to be available to media representatives following the inspection at approximately 1 p.m.
