The father of a student at the University of West Virginia sues a student house after his son suffered brain damage during one of his parties.

David Rusko Sr. filed the trial on Wednesday, eight months after 22-year-old David Rusko Jr. had remained paralyzed when he fell down the stairs during a Sigma Alpha Epsilon meeting.

The suit says fraternity brothers posed with Rusko Jr.'s unconscious body, sprayed ketchup on him and placed photos on social media instead of greeting an ambulance.

By the time 911 was mentioned two hours later, the college senior was allegedly bleeding from the nose, foaming at the mouth, and his brain not receiving enough oxygen.

The lawsuit alleges Sigma Alpha Epsilo & # 39; repeated repeatedly & # 39; university rules and its own code of conduct by offering alcohol to minors and retaining unregistered social functions.

Meanwhile, the Greek fraternity system was a problem for West Virginia University.
