NORMAN, Okla. -- The local chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon hired an attorney and could be planning to pursue legal action against the University of Oklahoma, and possibly OU President David Boren.

The group has hired high-profile attorney Stephen Jones to represent them.

Jones told NewsChannel 4 the group is outraged over President Boren shutting down the fraternity house and branding all SAE members as racists and bigots.

Jones says the two students who were expelled because of the incident have apologized sincerely for their remarks, and now the incident is being exploited.

He said they lacked judgment in a social setting, but they should not be tarred and feathered as racists.

Now, the group is looking at all options, as far as litigation.

We are told the decision to hire Jones came after an emergency meeting held by SAE members and alumni.
