Suspended fraternity drops lawsuit against Miami University

OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - A suspended fraternity at Miami University has dropped its $10 million lawsuit against the school.

Phi Kappa Tau originally said their constitutional rights were violated by suspending them without an appeals hearing. Phi Kappa Tau claimed in the lawsuit that the university acted recklessly and maliciously when they imposed the punishment. The federal action also claimed the suspension interferes with the fraternity's business operations and violates members' constitutional rights.

Phi Kappa Tau and Sigma Alpha Epsilon were suspended after police found drugs inside the houses following a firework fight between the two fraternities.
