A former student has sued San Jose State University, eight students and the Sigma Gamma Rho sorority, charging that they did nothing to prevent violent hazing and retaliation for reporting hazing, The San Jose Mercury News reported. Four of the students have already been convicted in court of misdemeanor hazing. According to the suit, the hazing involved beatings, punching, kicking and paddling. The woman who is suing left the university, saying she did not feel safe, and transferred to the University of Southern California. A university spokesman said that anti-hazing rules are strictly enforced.
