A total of 86 current and former members of a fraternity at Yale University are being personally sued in connection with a deadly tailgating crash at the annual Yale-Harvard football game in New Haven in 2011. How is it that the 86 local fraternity members are being sued personally?
It seems the insurance carrier of the national chapter of the fraternity has disavowed coverage, indicating the national chapter was not responsible for the Yale chapter’s actions, didn’t sanction the tailgating event at the game and its insurance company doesn’t cover non-fraternity events. Yet another reminder why it is extra important for parents of college students to re-examine their personal liability insurance protection.
