Employment Actions Taken Over Hazing at FAMU

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida A&M University officials say appropriate employment actions have been taken against two music professors allegedly involved in hazing band members.
They refused to confirm or deny Tuesday if the faculty members were fired. A statement from the university's lawyer cites a confidentiality law saying such information cannot be released without a faculty member's permission or court order.
The Orlando Sentinel, though, quoted a faculty union official as saying Diron Holloway and Anthony Simons had been fired. United Faculty of Florida chapter president Elizabeth Davenport did not immediately respond to messages seeking confirmation.
A Tallahassee police report in March accused both faculty members of being present during hazing at Holloway's home two years ago.
Authorities also are investigating a band member's death due to hazing last year in Orlando.
