Florida A&M president resigns over hazing death
In the lawsuit filed on Wednesday, Champion’s parents alleged that FAMU leaders tolerated hazing that had hospitalized three other band members and was implicated at least 107 other incidents since 1983.
They also alleged that the university failed to act three days before Champion’s death on a proposal by the school’s dean of students to immediately suspend the band in an effort to tackle the hazing problem.
Champion’s mother, Pamela, welcomed Ammons resignation at a press conference in Orlando late Wednesday. “They (FAMU) need to clean house and that’s the only way to move forward,” she said.
