University of Georgia Student Injured in ‘Foam Party’ Sues Frat

July 18, 2011

A University of Georgia student who was injured at a fraternity’s “foam party” has filed a lawsuit seeking medical expenses.

Leah Carole Mock said in the lawsuit filed this week in Athens-Clarke County Superior Court that a tooth was broken and three other teeth were driven into her gum and jawbone when a fraternity member slid onto a foam-covered floor and slammed into her.

The lawsuit seeks compensation from the Tau Epsilon Phi fraternity and the member who caused the injuries to cover nearly $14,000 in medical expenses. It also seeks a jury trial to compensate her for pain and suffering.

The party was thrown in September 2009 at the fraternity’s house. Such parties use a foam machine to cover the floor with several feet of suds or bubbles.
