Here is an introduction, with a link to the full article below.

"Thank you, sir, may I have another?" Moviegoers laughed at actor Kevin Bacon in "Animal House", pleading on all fours while his underwear-clad bottom was paddled during a fictionalized hazing at the Omega House.

But for William Quinn, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana campus, a real-life initiation ritual was not funny.

It was "Pledge Dad Night" at Beta Theta Pi fraternity in the fall of 1986. As a freshman pledge, Quinn was directed to drink alcohol to the point where he suffered neurological damage causing partial permanent disability to his arms and hands.

Quinn brought suit against the fraternity on the grounds of negligence. The circuit court dismissed his complaint, but the appellate court found a duty existed. Quinn v. Sigma Rho Chapter of Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, 155 Ill. App.3d 231, 507 N.E.2d 1193 (4th Dist.1987).
