The lawsuit alleges that university officials acted with "malice, hatred and ill will" by suspending the fraternity last month for a fireworks battle and having marijuana.
Fox19's legal analyst Mike Allen says based on the alleged actions, the fraternity doesn't have much of a case.
"They took marijuana and drug paraphernalia out of the offending fraternities, fraternity house," said Allen. "That is grounds enough for the university to issue the suspension that they did. At the end of the day, I think the federal court and federal judge will defer to the university on how to run their university."
The Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity claims the university failed to apply due process guaranteed through the eighth and fourteenth amendments.
The university says the school acted in the best interest of student safety.
