Fraternity's lawsuit against Miami University over suspension still pending

CINCINNATI - A case involving a lawsuit by a fraternity at Miami University in southern Ohio against the school has been reopened.

Court records showed last week that the $10 million lawsuit by Phi Kappa Tau had been dismissed.

But an official with the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati says it was a "clerical mistake" after the fraternity's lawyer sought to remove the national fraternity as a plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The court reopened the case and the lawsuit is still pending, with only the local chapter of the fraternity named as a plaintiff.

The lawsuit alleges that university officials acted with "malice, hatred and ill will" by suspending the fraternity last month for a fireworks battle and having marijuana.

The university says the school acted in the best interest of student safety.
