Mullins McLeod, lead trial attorney in a trial involving the hazing beating of student Daniel McElveen at Francis Marion University. Mr. McElveen was severely and repeatedly beaten during the Phi Beta Sigma’s fraternity’s “Hell Night”. His beatings were so severe that he suffered acute renal failure. After arguments from both sides, the jury returned a verdict for $600,000 actual damages and $1,000,000 in punitive damages against defendant Maurice Robinson, who at the time of the incident was an alumnus of the university and a high ranking alumnus of Phi Beta Sigma and still an active campus chapter member. The verdict demonstrated that hazing is an unacceptable practice being carried out in our schools and that awareness on this issue was raising awareness to this practice.
