The following statement is issued in response to media inquiries regarding the filing of a defense motion for a protective order in the case of James Vivenzio vs. Pennsylvania State University, Kappa Delta Rho, et. al. (Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, April Term 2015 No.150401671)
On behalf of Mr Vivenzio, and all victims of hazing and campus sexual violence, we will vigorously oppose the effort to suppress non-confidential information that is or should be publicly available. Penn State and KDR should have nothing to hide when it comes to the facts. Mr. Vivenzio is committed to having www.endhazingnow.com, serve as a freely accessible website for public information and educational materials about this case and other cases and incidents involving hazing and sexual violence on campus.
