TUCSON, Ariz. - The University of Arizona has suspended a fraternity after a former student filed a notice of claim against the school.

UA spokesman Chris Sigurdson said the university suspended the Theta Chi fraternity Beta Iota chapter after a notice of claim originating from a former student was served to the school.

Sigurdson did not confirm the content of the notice of claim.

Theta Chi Fraternity sent KGUN9 a statement in response to the chapter's suspension:

Theta Chi Fraternity is aware of the interim suspension of its Beta Iota Chapter and is investigating. Fraternity leaders have been in contact with University of Arizona administrators. Hazing runs contrary to Theta Chi's mission of developing Resolute Men and has no place within the fraternity experience.

The UA withdrew recognition of Theta Chi in 2015 due to multiple violations of the Arizona Board of Regents Student Code of Conduct.

The fraternity is headquartered at 502 N. Campbell Ave.
