CLEVELAND — New information on the plane crash that killed four Case Western Reserve University students.

Attorneys for one of the students are considering suing a fraternity and the owners of the plane.

Attorneys representing Abraham Pishevar have filed the court documents.

He is the freshman from Rockville, Maryland killed in late August in the Willoughby Hills plane crash near the Cuyahoga County Airport.

The family believes that the flight may have been part of recruitment for the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity on campus.

“This was a young man with a tremendous heart, soul, and cared about so many, and so hopefully this discovery will help us get answers for the family.  And answers for ourselves, so that when the time is appropriate, we can bring action against those who are responsible,” said attorney Jamie Lebovits with Nurenberg Paris.

According to Case Western Reserve University, the student affairs office found no indication the flight was a formal rush activity.

They are expected to release a statement regarding the court filings later Wednesday.
