A Boone County Circuit Court
jury ruled yesterday that the negli-
gence of two UK social fraterni-
ties, a fraternity member and his
friend, who died in a 1993 drunk-
en-drivin accident, were “sub-
stantial actors” in the man’s

On Feb. 6, 1993, Gregory
Cooney, then 19, was killed while
riding with John Renaker, then
20, after a Lexington party at the
Kappa Sigma social fraternity
house, also sponsored by Sigma Pi
social fraternity.

The jury awarded $1.2 million

in damages for lost income and



$7,341 in funeral expenses to
Cooney’s estate.

The jury also assigned levels of
fault to each of the four parties. It
gave Cooney 51 percent of the
responsibility for the incident,
Renaker 29 percent, and each of
the fraternities received 10 per-
cent of the liability.

Ken Smith, attorney for Sigma
Pi, said his primary argument in
court was that Cooney and
Renaker were responsible for their
own actions and the outcome of
their actions.

“I was tremendously relieved,”
Smith said of the decision. “It
could have been for a lot more.
There was tremendous emotion in
the case. To try to evoke emotion

for a fraternity is harder.”

Smith said Sigma Pi has to pay
$120,000 in its settlement. He said
Kappa Sigma settled with
Cooney's family while the jury
was still out, but Kappa Sigma’s
attorney could not be contacted
for the specific amount.

He said the case is important to

“Fraternities are going to have
to recognize that they have a
responsibility to stop underage
drinking,” Smith said.

In the accident, Renaker’s car
crossed the I-75 median near Flo-
rence and collided with a truck
just after 3 a.m.

According to the fraternity’s
attorneys, Renaker thinks he and

Cooney began drinking beer
sometime around 5 pm. on Feb. 5
in Northern Kentucky. They
decided to go to Lexington for the
party, and Cooney bought a case
of beer using false identification
for the party. They were intoxi—
cated upon arrival in Lexington.

The two used fake IDs to be
stamped as legal at the Kappa
Sigma house and left at about
12:30 a.m. They had planned to
stay at the Sigma Pi house, but
Cooney decided they should

They left with Cooney driving.
Renaker agreed to complete the
trip when Cooney said he could
drive no longer, and the accident
occurred shortly thereafter.

About 200-300 people were at
the Kappa Sigma house for the
party. The fraternity’s attorney
statement states Kappa Sigma
complied with University require-
ments by checking IDs and having
a security guard posted. A list of
sober drivers was also posted at
the party

Hundreds of people under 21
were drinking at the party

said Peggy Murphy, prosecuting
attorney, in her opening argu—
ments. Regulations used by the
fraternities to limit drinking to
those over 21 were in place “sim-
ply to appease the University and
the police,” Murphy said.

“They were a joke, designed to

hol consumption was a free for
all," she said.

In a 1994. criminal trial,
Renaker pled guilty to a charge of
reckless homicide and was sen-
tenced to three years in prison.
He served the minimum one-fifth
of the sentence and is currently on

UK‘s fraternity alcohol policy
at the time was “bring your own,”
similar to the policy in place now.
In 1990, the Interfraternity Coun-
cil had passed a measure allowing
central distribution of alcohol at
fraternity parties, but it was
revoked a month later.

week’s game at Kansas State.

Wildcats to lace Cincinnati

“This is a (Southeastern Con—
ference) school we’re playing,”
Tate said, “so we can't take
nobody for granted.”

“I think Kentucky’s a better
team than Tulane, even though
Tulane laid it on the line a ainst
us,” he said. “Kentucky’s a better
team just from what I’ve seen on

Minter thinks tomorrow’s
game will be competitive, with the
team that makes fewer mistakes
coming out on top.

“We’re going to be like two big

‘ rams coming at one another,” he

said, “and the team that can get off
the mat, make the best corrections
and rally around one another will
come out with the victory.”

UK Coach Bill Curry said that
he doesn’t expect to see the same
Bearcat team that showed up last
Friday a ainst Tulane.

“I believe that what we saw in
(UC) will not be repeated against
us,” he said. “They were not as
bad as they appeared. We’re look-
ing forward to going up against

What the game may come
down to is defense, an area in
which both teams hope to see
improvement from their perfor-
mances last week.

But Minter said that UK’s
defense looked good against
Louisville, despite the score.

“Both clubs are in similar posi-
tions,” Minter said, “only that
(UK) played much better defense

than we did. (UK-U of L) was a
classic game of two defenses’
struggles, where Louisville's
defense and special teams made
big plays. Other than that, (that
game) was pretty much a draw."

UK only allowed U ofL to gain
260 yards, ()7 yards in the last
touchdown drive for the Cards.

UK cornerback Van Hiles said
that the team is putting the
Louisville loss behind them and
looking ahead to Cincinnati and
the rest of the season.

“We can’t dwell on (the
Louisville loss)," Hiles said,
“because we have 10 more games
to play.”

Strong safety Leman Boyd said
that the Cats will get the whole
package together in time for
tomorrow’s game.

“We’ll start winning,” he said.
“The offense and special teams
will put it together."

The Bearcats surrendered 408
yards of offense to Tulane, 322
yards ofit in the first halfalone.

The outing spoiled the debut of
Rex Ryan as the new defensive
coordinator at Cincinnati.

Ryan will bring a blitzing “46"
style defense into the game tomor-
row. It is a style much like the
defense of his father, Buddy, wl'io

Tate, who led the nation in kick
return average last season at 34.3
yards, suffered a sprained neck while
receiving a kickoff.

“I took a shot on kickoff,” Tate
said prior to UC’s practice on
\Vednesday. “The boy hit me head-
on—head, no shoulder pads, no noth—

“I felt something but I kept play-

got hit on it again. A guy held me up
and another y came in and hit me.
I was a little (Talked for a while.”

Tate said that the injury is healing
well, and he is listed as probable for
tomorrow’s game.

“(The neck’s) a little stiff,” Tate Tate

said. “I’ve been practicing through it.

The coaches made me wear a red jersey, so I’ve been

avoiding a lot of contact in practice.”
