A grieving father is suing a group of college students accused of plying his son with alcohol during a fatal hazing at a banned fraternity in western New York.
Arman Partamian was found dead March 1 after drinking heavily for three days to gain membership in the off-campus fraternity at the State University of New York in Geneseo.
In a wrongful death lawsuit filed in Queens, Hagop Partamian is seeking $2.5 million in compensation from six young men and two co-owners of the fraternity property.
Two former frat members are charged with hazing and criminally negligent homicide, a felony. A third pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in return for three months of weekends in jail.
Partamian was a sophomore and lived in Queens.
