A  former Virginia State University student is suing Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.

Christopher Rudder wants more than a million dollars from that fraternity.   

Rudder says he was punched, kicked in the groin and neck with a boot and also paddled by his frat brothers while pledging in 2009.   

He says he was paddled so hard he had to get surgery to repair the damage.      

That abuse supposedly went on for more than a month.
