Oklahoma SAE Fraternity Planning to Sue Over Racism Allegations, Hires Timothy McVeigh's Lawyer

The fraternity hired the same lawyer who defended Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon's University of Oklahoma chapter is looking into taking legal action against the university and president David Boren.

KFOR News in Oklahoma City reports that a group of students and alums plan to sue the university for calling them racist in response to video of them chanting a racist song while on a bus. The fraternity is reportedly "outraged" that Boren shut them down and has hired lawyer Stephen Jones, the man who defended Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh.

"Jones says the two students who were expelled because of the incident have apologized sincerely for their remarks, and now the incident is being exploited," reports KFOR News. "He said they lacked judgment in a social setting, but they should not be tarred and feathered as racists."
