FAMU attorneys alter motion to dismiss Champion hazing suit
ORLANDO, Fla. (MCT) — Attorneys for Florida A&M University on Thursday altered their motion to dismiss a wrongful death suit by the family of Robert Champion, taking out a controversial passage strongly suggesting that the late FAMU drum major was responsible for his own hazing death in Orlando last November.
The paragraph in question states that Champion, as a 26-year-old band leader, should have refused to participate in the hazing and reported it to authorities. “Under these circumstances, Florida taxpayers should not be held financially liable to Mr. Champion’s Estate for the ultimate result of his own imprudent, avoidable and tragic decision and death.”
