Did the young men who attacked mistake him as a member of another fraternity? ABC's linsey Davis with the attack caught on video. Reporter: Another fraternity under fire tonight because of this brawl caught on camera. Leave him alone! We're calling the cops! Reporter: Lawyers say this video shows members or guests of Texas state university's pi kappa phi fraternity attacking Nikolas panagiotopoulos, leaving him badly injured. That's enough! Enough!

NIK tries to run away. This mob of these fraternity guys chase after him, continue to whale away on him. Reporter: Nearly two months later, his attorney says he's still in a wheelchair, struggling to recover from spine and traumatic brain injuries. Panagiotopoulos is now suing three of his alleged attackers, along with the fraternity's national organization and local chapter for negligence and aggravated assault. It's not just this campus, as many campuses where we're seeing a lack of institutional control by these fraternities and allowing this to go on. Something has to change.

We reached out to the fraternity's national organization, they tell us they do not comment on pending litigation, David. All right, linsey Davis with us tonight. Thank you.
