Another case involving a frat and allegations of sexual assault is making headlines, this one involving two male students. University of Pennsylvania graduate Reginald Stewart says he attended a rush party for Phi Kappa Psi when he was a sophomore and was raped afterward by another recruit, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. He's going after both his alleged attacker and the frat because he says he was served alcohol at the party until he could barely stand, even though he was an underage 19 at the time. His lawsuit says that Charles Gibson and another student walked him home after the party, and he woke to Gibson raping him.
Stewart, who recalls being too drunk to fight off the attack, says he later needed reconstructive surgery on his rectum, and he claims that Gibson gave him the sexually transmitted disease HPV. Gibson declined to comment to Philadelphia Magazine, but in court documents he says the sex was consensual and denies passing along the STD. Stewart, who graduated in May, is seeking about $500,000 in damages. Gibson graduated last year. (Read more University of Pennsylvania stories.)
