Suspended Miami University fraternity sues for $10M

OXFORD, Ohio - A suspended fraternity at Miami University in southern Ohio has sued the school for $10 million.

The lawsuit was filed by the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati on Tuesday.

It says that university officials acted with "malice, hatred and ill will" by suspending the fraternity for allegedly shooting off fireworks at another frat house and having marijuana.

University spokeswoman Claire Wagner says the school acted in the best interest of student safety and followed policy.

The university suspended Phi Kappa Tau and another fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, last week after police said the two frat houses had a fireworks battle on Aug. 19 that led to the discovery of marijuana and a couple pipes.
