This past week Lawyer and Expert Witness David Easlick participated in Georgia Bar Associations ICLE Hazing Seminar. The well attended program was put together by Brian “Buck” Rogers and his Law Firm Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC in Atlanta. The program was a roadmap for plaintiff’s lawyers in Hazing cases.
David Easlick’s presentation, “Help navigating the Greek ‘Industry” Risk Management Rapids” dealt with the FIPG risk management code and the Fraternity Insurance Program. Buck, who is currently working on a hazing case with David where his client was left quadriplegic, spoke on the topic of “Hazing Laws; Multi-jurisdictional overview: How the victims seek justice”. Another speaker, Jennifer Spragins Burnett, whom Mr. Easlick previously worked on the infamous Tucker Hipps v. Sigma Phi Epsilon case at Clemson with, spoke on the “”Culture of Servitude’ and how to break the code of silence”. The Tucker Hipps v. Sigma Phi Epsilon case resulted in a new notification statute in South Carolina known as the Hipps Law.
Steve Gruver also spoke on the topic of “Victim Advocacy and Prevention”. Steve and his wife are the parents of Max Gruver, the 19 year-old Freshman who died during an incident with the members of Phi Delta Theta as LSU while pledging the chapter. Steve is now devoting himself to the Max Gruver Foundation, which is located at https://www.maxgruverfoundation.com/. The Max Gruver Foundation is a non-profit organization working to end hazing on college campuses. David asks that those interested in ending hazing on college campuses join him in donating to the Foundation.
