Family of Deceased Clemson Frat Member Files Wrongful Death Suit

arbitrationFollowing the death of a Clemson University freshman Tucker Hipps in September 2014, his family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the victim’s fraternity, three fraternity brothers and the University.

According to the lawsuit, Tucker had a confrontation with one of his fraternity brothers just before he “went over the railing of the bridge into the shallow waters of Lake Hartwell head first.” The suit also alleges that his fraternity brothers attempted to cover up his disappearance until his body was found later that afternoon.

The victim’s family has claimed $25 million in damages in the lawsuit filed in the Pickens County on March 30.
