ATLANTA - A Georgia State student is suing a Georgia Tech fraternity, claiming members used markers to draw on her body after she passed out from a spiked drink.
Ga. Tech students reacted immediately after Channel 2’s Ryan Young told them about a lawsuit against the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, where a female GSU student alleged someone used markers to draw on her body after she was drugged.
In a lawsuit filed this week, her lawyer states:
“Fraternity letters and other vulgar and sexually suggestive comments were scrawled all over Plaintiff's chest, arms, abdomen and back with different color ink markers.”
“I feel like you hear about that happening a decent amount in college and you expect that to happened, but it’s sad that it happened,” said Ga. Tech student Kendall Feaster.
Channel 2 looked through the lawsuit the GSU student's lawyer filed.
“She was at the Phi Gamma Delta house on Fowler Street in April of 2012, when the plaintiff was handed the drink, she blacked out. That drink was the only thing plaintiff consumed at the party."
The student said she woke up partially nude. After putting her clothes back on, she flagged down an officer. Later, her roommate noticed strange markings on her body.
Ga. Tech sent a statement that in part reads:
“Georgia Tech Police Department conducted a full investigation of the incident. Since this is a civil matter and Georgia Tech is not a party to the lawsuit, it is not appropriate for us to comment...”
“When you go out you should have some responsible friends who have your back,” said Ga. Tech student Rachel Thorne.
Channel 2 tried talking to the national chapter of this fraternity, but they have not seen the lawsuit yet and wanted to wait to comment.
