Wrongful death suit against University centers on alleged negligence

The lawsuit, filed Monday, alleges that the University was negligent in its treatment of drug cases on campus, putting students such as Soh in danger. Central to the suit is the family’s claim that after a series of drug investigations and violations among Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity, of which Soh was a member, SAM members were not referred to criminal prosecution and were instead dealt with within the University’s own judicial system.
