AUBURN, AL (WSFA) – It’s been two weeks since a fight at an Auburn University fraternity house left one freshman with severe injuries. Now the fight has moved to the courtroom.

Taylor G. Jones was critically injured and rushed to a Georgia hospital after someone beat him at the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity house on January 11.

Now, the Montgomery-based law firm of Beasley Allen has stepped into the fray filing a complaint on Jones’ behalf against Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity, the Auburn chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon, the Alabama Alpha chapter and a fraternity member named Zachary James Quillen.

The law firm alleges Jones was injured at the fraternity house by Quillen and that the fraternity “failed to provide proper and adequate security to ensure safety at the party at the fraternity house.”

WSFA 12 News partner WTVM is reporting that the Lee County District Attorney and the Auburn Police Department have issued a warrant for Quillen’s arrest.

Jones was released from the hospital over the weekend and is now undergoing physical therapy.

WSFA 12 News will continue to follow this story.

Number one firm

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
