LIU Students Settle Lawsuit over Fake Hostage Video

By March 1, 2007

FOXNews.com is reporting that the Long Island University (LIU) students who brought suit against the university after being dismissed from their RA positions over a fake hostage video have reached a settlement with the university:

Five college students who lost campus jobs after making a gag hostage-taking video using crude Middle Eastern accents settled a lawsuit over the incident, and the college decided not to pursue disciplinary action against them, the students’ lawyer and a college official said.
 
We’re all happy to publicly report that any dispute which existed between the plaintiffs and defendants in this action has been settled to the mutual satisfaction of all parties,” the students’ lawyer, Frederick K. Brewington, said Wednesday, accompanied by representatives from Long Island University and its C.W. Post College.
 
They would not discuss details of the settlement.
