MOSCOW -- A $1 million settlement offer to end a lawsuit by the family of a former University of Idaho student seriously injured in a 2009 fall from a fraternity house window has been rejected by the school and the Idaho State Board of Education.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports in a story published Saturday that officials passed on the proposed agreement by the parents of Amanda Andaverde.

Esmeralda Banda and Raul Andaverde in September filed the lawsuit claiming the university, state board and several fraternities and sororities on the Moscow campus didn't do enough to ensure the safety of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house where she was injured.

Andaverde, who was 19 at the time, fell 27 feet and suffered bone fractures and debilitating injuries.
