Ole Miss fraternity will appeal suspension

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - An official representing the University of Mississippi fraternity that was suspended for one year after a black student said he was harassed, plans to appeal the sanction.

The student newspaper, The Daily Mississippian, reported on its Web site Monday that David Easlick said the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity is planning to present an alternative sanction.

Easlick is the fraternity's national executive president.

Ole Miss official Jeff Alford said the fraternity has until 5 p.m. Tuesday to appeal.

Alford said if an appeal is filed, it will be dealt with quickly.

Freshman Jeremiah Taylor filed a complaint saying he was called the N-word and pushed while attending a party the fraternity hosted in August.

The newspaper said Taylor did not return calls seeking comment.
