The U.S. Supreme Court has turned away an appeal from Louisiana State University in the death of a fraternity pledge.
The court announced Monday that LSU can't claim immunity from a lawsuit filed by Stephen and Rae Ann Gruver, whose son Maxwell Gruver died after a Phi Delta Theta fraternity party in 2017.
In the $25 million suit, the Gruver family alleges that LSU responded with "deliberate indifference" to allegations of hazing at fraternities.
It also said Phi Delta has "a long history of dangerous misconduct at universities across the country."
Max Gruver had been at LSU for a month when he died.
