Coming a little late to the party, CBS’s “Inside Edition” is broadcasting a segment on rowdy goings-on on Berkeley’s frat row, and the decision by neighbor Paul Ghysels to file a class action lawsuit against all 35 fraternities near the campus.
This story broke in January. The “Inside Edition” piece, voiced by a reporter who seems to feel the need to shout, includes footage taken from video surveillance cameras installed by Ghysels, as well as an interview with him in which he says his neighborhood is under siege and he is worried for his family’s safety.
Jim Ewbank, attorney for the 35 fraternities on campus, says the lawsuit is without merit: “We tend to see those sensational incidents, which nobody condones by the way, as isolated and not a pattern of behavior.”
