This afternoon, the Argus broke the story that the Wesleyan chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon is planning to sue the university for discrimination and deceptive practices. The suit, brought by DKE in collaboration with their alumni chapter, the Kent Literary Club, and two Wes sophomores, details DKE’s interactions with the university since the co-education decision of last September before making charges associated with DKE’s recent loss of program house status for the 2015-2016 school year. After the jump are excerpts from DKE’s press release, courtesy of the Argus; statements from a Wesleyan spokesperson, and a brief summary of the lawsuit.

From the never-dying Todd Keats ’11:
The Brothers of Delta Kappa Epsilon invite you to join us in listening to Connecticut College educator and former Wesleyan DKE alumnus Charles Cocores discuss the dangers associated with alcohol consumption. Mr. Cocores, with the help of a few DKE brothers including a fully trained DKE EMT, will speak upon a number of issues concerning alcohol consumption from the negative chemical processes associated with drinking to the social dangers that come with over-consumption of alcohol. Mr. Cocores is well versed in alcohol and drug awareness education so please take the time to stop by Thursday October 21st at 7pm at DKE, it’s sure to be an educational and helpful talk and should be of interest to all students at Wesleyan.
