Judge to hear UI fraternity fall suit

A district court judge will hear arguments this week regarding who should be held responsible for a former University of Idaho student’s 2009 fall out of a fraternity house window in Moscow.

She had reportedly consumed alcohol at two different house parties, one of them at SAE, the night of Sept. 9.
