Florida A&M Offers $300,000 To End Hazing Lawsuit
An attorney for the family of a Florida A&M University drum major who died following a hazing incident said Thursday that a $300,000 settlement offer from the school is “insulting.”
The amount offered is the maximum amount the university can pay without seeking approval by the Florida Legislature, reports the Palm Beach Post.
Attorney Chris Chestnut said it showed that the university wasn’t serious about resolving the case with Robert Champion’s family. Chestnut wouldn’t say what amount the family would consider acceptable.
The school’s settlement offer was made less than a week after efforts at all-day mediation failed last Friday in Orlando
