Wrongful death suit may expand
DeKALB – More students could be named in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of David Bogenberger, the 19-year-old fraternity pledge who died after a night of heavy drinking in November.
Bogenberger family attorney Peter Coladarci was granted an emergency request Tuesday by a Cook County judge to quickly receive police reports, photographs and other evidence that would provide the names of all those who attended the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity party Nov. 1 near the Northern Illinois University campus in DeKalb.
Coladarci said it was imperative to identify all those potentially responsible quickly because many students could leave the area after school ends in May. The lawsuit names 22 fraternity members, but Coladarci said more could be responsible as there were more than 40 people at the party and more than 30 face discipline from NIU.
