The future of this case remains uncertain with Parks Miller losing her bid for re-election.

Nine members already charged in the case face no new charges. Parks Miller, who's leaving office at the end of the year, then refiled numerous charges. "Her successor - Bernie Cantorna - has not said whether or not he intends to proceed with the prosecution".

In September, following an unusually long, hard-fought preliminary hearing, a judge dismissed the most serious charges against the fraternity members. The school has also changed the way it regulates fraternities and sororities, assuming more control over disciplinary procedures.

Piazza fell down basement steps during a night of excessive drinking, police said. "The visions of him lying in the hospital bed, battered and bruised and on life-support, looking as if he got hit by a tractor-trailer made no sense".
