Ex-President of Alpha Phi Alpha Sues Fraternity

ATLANTA (AP) -- A judge has delayed a ruling on whether the ousted president of the nation's oldest black fraternity should be reinstated.

Herman "Skip" Mason claims he was illegally removed as the 33rd general president of Alpha Phi Alpha in April.

The fraternity contends he was removed due to allegations of financial mismanagement.

Both sides will argue their case in DeKalb County Superior Court on Friday. A judge on Tuesday delayed ruling on the matter to review more information in the case.

According to the complaint, Mason was ousted at the fraternity's regional convention in Las Vegas after questions arose regarding use of fraternity funds for dependent care and tuition.

Mason has denied wrongdoing and says he has made arrangements to reimburse Alpha Phi Alpha.
