Article 14 (Discipline)


Unless otherwise provided by the Constitution and Bylaws of the Fraternity or the bylaws of the chapter, the Judicial Board shall have the power to prescribe methods for punishing a breach of rules and regulations of the chapter.


Any member who has been fined in accordance with Section 1 of this article may register an appeal with the Sergeant at Arms. The Sergeant at Arms shall present said appeal to the chapter at the first regular meeting following the registration of the appeal, and the active chapter shall have the power to revoke the fine appealed by a 3/4 vote.


The president and the sergeant-at-arms shall have the power to levy a fine against a member for each offense against the order of the meeting or the chapter, or for improper attire at the formal meeting of the chapter. Said fines and their amounts shall be paid to the treasurer within 24 hours of the meeting or fine will be added to member’s next house bill.


The chapter may, upon a two-thirds majority vote of the chapter, enact any rules of a current temporary nature. Said rules shall be in effect until the second regular meeting of a new academic semester at which time they become null and void. A simple majority of those voting shall be necessary to enact or repeal such a rule, if prior approval is obtained from the Administrative Committee. These rules will be considered to be house rules subject to a punishment for their infraction. The judicial board shall give such punishments for their infraction in the usual manner.


Big Brothers shall be held accountable for the actions of their Little Brothers during their pledgeship. Should a pledge be assigned punishment for negligence, it shall be the duty of the Big Brother to assist him in its execution.
