Civil Lawsuit for the Consequences of Hazing
Has your daughter or son suffered physical or emotional harm as a result of an induction related ceremony or hazing at a fraternity or sorority in California? Hazing at a fraternity or sorority is not only against criminal law in California, it exposes those who are responsible and associated organizations to financial damages and accountability in a civil lawsuit.
My name is Rivers Morrell and for more than 40 years I have tried cases and brought successful actions to hold those responsible financially accountable for violations of California’s civil laws. If your son or daughter has suffered physical or emotional harm or lost their life due to the negligent, reckless or malicious acts of another I will hold those responsible financially accountable for their actions. What simply starts as a tradition or rite of passage can quickly spiral out of control or cross the line into criminal and civil violations of California law.
Rivers Morrell is an experienced and proven civil lawsuit and trial attorney based in Mission Viejo and Irvine for over 40 years. Serving all of California including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and the Inland Empire, Mr. Morrell is highly respected by insurance companies, his peers, the legal industry and his clients alike.

Punitive Damages – punitive damages are available as an additional remedy in many hazing cases which serve as a punishment and future deterrent for those responsible.
Can You Sue a Sorority or Fraternity for Hazing?
Yes, it is absolutely possible to successfully hold a sorority or fraternity as well as the associated educational institution responsible and accountable for hazing through a civil lawsuit. Hazing is against the law in California. Our criminal and civil code provides punishment and financial remedies for any physical and/or emotional harm or wrongful death resulting from purposeful or unintentional, malicious, negligent or reckless hazing actions at a fraternity or sorority.
The University, College, private or parochial school or other educational institution associated with the sorority or fraternity can share responsibility and civil liability for the physical and emotional consequences of hazing.
