A University of Houston graduate reached a settlement with Omega Psi Phi over an alleged hazing incident that took place in 2009, Houston Press reports.
Lee West III settled with the fraternity for an undisclosed amount of money. In 2009, West sought membership in the fraternity to follow in the footsteps of his father who is a member of the fraternity.
West alleges he was beaten with a wood board, a baseball bat and television antenna, in addition to experiencing mental torture.
West is pleased the legal proceedings has come to a conclusion, but is upset he is not a member of the fraternity.
“I’m a little detached,” West III told the Houston Press. “But it’s still pretty upsetting to think the opportunity was taken away from me.”
