Sean Tennant says that the fall after a party in January of 2019, left him with a catastrophic brain injury and unable to walk or feed himself. The lawsuit claims the dorm atmosphere, which they say encourages underage drinking without supervision, and its outdated infrastructure are to blame for the fall.
