Rider Student Suing After Death
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) ―

The parents of a Rider University student who died after a suspected hazing incident last spring have sued the school.

Gary and Julie DeVercelly are claiming that Rider didn't adequately supervise the fraternity house where excessive drinking occurred.

Their son Gary DeVercelly Jr. died in March after a party at the on-campus Phi Kappa Tau house in which authorities say pledges were urged to consume large quantities of alcohol.

The suit in state Superior Court seeks an unspecified amount of money from Rider, as well as Ohio-based Phi Kappa Tau, and four members of the fraternity's now-defunct Rider chapter.

The suit claims Rider's fraternity and sorority houses, which are on campus, received less oversight than the university's residence halls, and that administrators were or should have been aware of hazing and alcohol dangers associated with Greek-life organizations.

Rider isn't immediately commenting on the suit.

I'm so glad this article had the most annoying headline ever so I can avoid all the other comments I got tired of making nine months ago.

Rider Student Suing After Death
I wish -- I WISH SO HARD -- that my newspapers ran articles about post-mortem lawsuits filed from the grave.

Actually, that headline has me wondering what the writer was thinking. Like the kid's going to come back from the dead to file a lawsuit. LOL

The sad part is that I actually saw this coming. I remember telling my dad months ago, "Watch the kid's parents sue the school." And it looks like I was right.

I WISH SO HARD

Hahahahahahahahahaha! HARD!

But seriously the afterlife is pretty much stuck in every '90s trend you can think of: every corpse and his late mother has a suit pending, Ally McBeal is the rage with the haunting crowd, Jesus is all about the Macarena (he's all that and a bag of chips), Nessie is rearing her ugly head... Pretty soon you're going to see zombies duking it out for Tickle Me Elmo.

There's a real joke in there for you to ferret out. And then I'll ferret you out of your pants.

Hard like our friend Lloyd with the unfortunate last name. Haha.

And, because I'm a ferreting-out master (and our telepathic twin powers are bottomless, much like our rhymes), I found your oh-so-well-placed joke. I'm all over that like me on you. Frantic texting will commence as soon as I get to work because I miss my sexier half so, SO much.
