Do we have any proof–nay, even indication!–that fraternities are capable of embarrassment?

Yet one more example of why there should be a “Darwin Award” (of close there to) defense for civil liability. “Your Honor, the Plaintiff acted with such blatant stupidity that there was no way to foresee the possibility this event happening. Move to dismiss!”

Of course in this case the plaintiff is not the one chargeable with such stupidity. But perhaps the fraternity could consider this defense in seeking to be let out of the case.

“Must be pre-law.”
