Ryan Clifford, who graduated in 2010, alleges that he was punched, stripped naked, molested and forced to drink “inordinate amounts” of alcohol while pledging the Chi Delta chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi in fall 2008.
In his lawsuit filed in federal court in Sacramento, Clifford said he was targeted for a particularly harsh form of hazing because he was one of the few non-Jewish students pledging the Jewish fraternity.
Upon returning to the fraternity house, Clifford’s fraternity “big brother” tried to prevent him from leaving by choking him, stomping on his foot and knocking him to the floor. Clifford suffered multiple fractures in his foot that required two surgeries and resulted in a permanent limp, the complaint said.
