(AP) Off-campus fraternities cannot serve alcohol to people under the age of 21 because their houses don't fall within the "private residence" exception in Louisiana s minimum drinking age law, a new IN THE 1 attorney general's opinion said. Citing a Louisiana Supreme Court decision, Assistant Attorney General Sherry Tew said the exception is designed to cover "family occasions" and the Civil Code defines a family as "a father, mother and children . . . obviously, fraternity members do not fit this definition.""Accordingly, universities cannot sanction fraternity activities which allow underage drinking to occur," Ms. Tew said in the opinion The opinion came in response to a request by James Caillier, president of the University of Louisiana System, who said he asked for the opinion on behalf of Southeastern Louisiana University President Sally Clausen. "It was quite an issue over here because the fraternities felt very, very strongly that I was invading their privacy," Ms. Clausen said. "We subsequently had many, many hours of dialogue about it and we ended up with a compromise." Ms. Clausen said she sent the students her alcohol policy and the groups agreed to "monitor themselves and that I would be in there with my campus police at times making sure that they would indeed monitor themselves. "The agreement stated that no one under age 21 would be admitted into the fraternity house if they had alcohol and that, at all events, no one under age 21 could purchase, consume or possess alcohol" Ms. Clausen said.
