- The national organization of fraternity Delta Tau Delta is facing accusations that the chapter recklessly served alcohol at parties and used the substance to recruit members, a factor that contributed to a student’s death two years ago after a party at the College Park campus, according to a federal lawsuit. Oscar Gray, JD, professor emeritus at the School of Law, said according to a legal precedent recognized in Maryland courts, bartenders are not held responsible for the illegal actions that result from serving alcohol to minors or those already drunk. The same logic would probably apply to the fraternity, he said. Still, he added that especially if the plaintiff proves the fraternity served alcohol to minors, a judge might be inclined to accept exceptions to this traditional liability precedent.
