According to legal papers filed by the university, Florida A&M University believes they are not at fault for the actions taken by Robert Champion that resulted in his death.

The family of Champion has filed a suit against the university as well as the owner and driver of the charter bus company where the incident had taken place. Criminal cases are still commencing against members of the band.

The aftermath of the hazing death of the drum major, Champion, has had lasting effects on all parties involved. The university has suspended the band, Marching 100, for the football season; the president of the university has resigned; and some of the band members had been arrested. Also, the university has increased anti-hazing policies on the campus.
