Lawsuit Against Fraternity over Illinois Student’s Hazing Death Settled for $14M


The family of a Northern Illinois University student who died while enduring a fraternity hazing has reached a $14 million settlement of their lawsuit.

David Bogenberger of Palatine, Illinois, was found dead in November 2012 at Pi Kappa Alpha, the fraternity the 19-year-old was pledging.
Authorities, Bogenberger and other words, said they attended an event that required them to drink vodka and other drinks.

According to the case, a fraternity member moved Bogenberger into a bedroom rather than receiving medical help after it became unconscious. Toxicological results showed that Bogenberger’s blood alcohol content was five times the legal limit for driving.

Almost two dozen Pi Kappa Alpha members were found guilty of charges in connection with his death.

Bogenberger’s family sued brotherhood and fraternity members at the party. Family lawyer Peter Colardarci said the agreement was reached in August and received final payments earlier this month.
