The family of the late Michael Tobin C’94 has settled its wrongful-death lawsuit against the University, Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, and the real-estate management firm of Trammell Crow for an undisclosed amount of money. Tobin died from a fall behind the Penn-owned FIJI fraternity house at 3619 Locust Walk in March, 1999, after an alumni dinner at which he had been drinking heavily. His family had charged that it was the University’s failure to maintain the stairs behind the fraternity house that had caused Tobin’s death. Since then the fraternity has been disbanded and the University has revamped its alcohol policy.
