A lawyer for the family of Robert Champion, a Florida university drum major who died this month in what officials have called a hazing-related death, said Monday he will file a lawsuit against the school.

Lawyer Chris Chestnut told reporters. “We are concerned about the culture of coverup, that hazing has been covered up at the Band FAMU for generations. So, it’s time now that we expose the truth, eradicate this culture, and come up with creative remedies on how to continue the excellence of FAMU’s band, but without hazing.”

Champion was found unresponsive in the back of a parked band bus in Orlando, after FAMU’s football team lost the Florida Classic to archrival Bethune-Cookman University.

Funeral Services are this Wednesday in Dekalb County, GA.
