The Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter disbanded after a video showed members singing a racist chant has reportedly hired an attorney who represented Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
High-profile lawyer Stephen Jones told NBC station KFOR the group he's representing is unhappy that the their chapter was closed by University of Oklahoma President President David Boren and plans legal action against the college.
NBC News was not able to immediately independently confirm Jones’ hiring.
In a statement, the national SAE organization said that it has no plans to pursue legal action against the university. It said that it supports the university's decision to shut down the chapter and will move ahead with plans to expel some members of the Oklahoma chapter from the national organization.
