(NEWSER) – The fraternity whose racist chant brought national scorn and ridicule to the University of Oklahoma plans to sue the university. The newly hired attorney for Sigma Alpha Epsilon tells KFOR that the school unfairly damaged the reputations of all SAE members when it shut down the frat house after the incident.
Stephen Jones—described by NBC News as a "maverick attorney" best known for defending Timothy McVeigh—adds that the two students expelled over the chant aren't racists but merely "lacked judgment in a social setting," in the words of KFOR. Jones doesn't represent those two, notes KOCO.
