University of Central Florida Fraternity Suspended After "Revenge Porn" Suit

The University of Central Florida has suspended the Sigma Delta Chi fraternity on Friday, June 15, just days after they were sued by Kathryn Novak, the ex-girlfriend of a member who claims the fraternity engaged in “revenge porn”.
According to Novak, her ex-boyfriend and Sigma Delta Chi fraternity member Brandon Simpson filmed one of their sexual encounters and shared it with his fraternity brothers. Furthermore, Novak claims that the video was shown at a chapter house meeting and has been seen by more than 200 people.
Novak’s lawsuit claims that five total members of Sigma Delta Chi shared and viewed nude videos and photos of her without her permission last year. The defendants have been accused of invasion of privacy, infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
The suit says that the video was shared on a secret Facebook page called the “Dog Pound,” where “fraternity brothers routinely posted electronic images of their sexual ‘conquests’.

The lawsuit says members of the fraternity also posted nude imagery of their “sexual conquests” to the Facebook page — all without the women’s consent. Novak’s attorney, Michael Avenatti — better known as the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with President Donald Trump — said in a phone interview from California that there are more victims in the case. “We expect there to be numerous victims at this time — certainly into the double digits,” he said.
The complaint, filed in United States District Court for the the Middle District of Florida in Orlando, states that Novak and Simpson saw each other twice a month. In October of last year, the suit alleges, he recorded video of a sexual encounter with her and quickly distributed it to four fraternity brothers, Jacob Pelkey, Andre Perales, Jonathan Landrum and Matt Farley.
Simpson and the others eventually passed it along to a wider fraternity audience for viewing at chapter meetings, the suit alleges. The video ended up on a “secret” Facebook page they called the Dog Pound, it says, along with erotic pictures of Novak that she had sent to her boyfriend with the understanding that he would not let others see them.

The fraternity itself is also named in the suit.
The national Delta Sigma Phi fraternity organization announced on Thursday, June 14, that it had suspended the University of Central Florida chapter.

“While we cannot comment on specific allegations made in the lawsuit, these claims are disturbing and antithetical to our organization’s values and mission,” the organization said in a statement.
