Parents Sue After Student Death

The parents of a New Mexico State University student who died after falling into an alcohol-related coma are filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Stephen Judd, who was a member of the Delta Chi fraternity, died on his 21st birthday almost two years ago (18NOV04) after going out drinking with friends and consuming an excessive amount of alcohol. He later fell into a coma and died the next day. Judd's parents are accusing the fraternity, the university and the Hurricane Alley bar's owners for contributing to his death. NMSU General Council Bruce Kite said, "The university has not been served with a lawsuit, so I have no comment to make as far as the allegations, as I have not been able to review what has been filed under complaint."
