BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A lawsuit that accuses Southern University's Marching Band of hazing eight years ago got the green light Tuesday.

The Louisiana Supreme Court cleared the way for Marcus Heath and Cameron Taylor to move forward with their lawsuit. 

The pair sued the university and former band leader Jeremy Dixon following an off-campus incident.

They claim band members hit each other with boards in 2008 as part of an unsanctioned initiation into the band's unofficial French horn fraternity.
