Gallery: Insurer Paid $44K for Damage From Ohio University Sorority Party

June 1, 2010

A West Virginia art gallery that claims it got trashed while hosting an Ohio University sorority event says its insurance company is paying $44,000 to cover damage.

An attorney for the Parkersburg Art Center said it’s withdrawing its threat to sue the school’s Pi Beta Phi chapter but said insurance adjustors could still bring a lawsuit.

The gallery says there were food fights, drinks were dumped out on floors, and a sink was pulled from a wall during the sorority’s March 6 winter formal.

The national Pi Beta Phi organization has accused the art center of making exaggerated claims.

The sorority’s chapter at Miami University of Ohio was recently suspended for one year because of damage and misconduct during an event at a lodge.
