Rolling Stone Settles With UVA Dean in Rape Hoax Defamation Lawsuit

Posted on | April 12, 2017 | No Comments

Last year, a jury awarded $3 million to University of Virginia Dean Nicole Eramo, who was defamed by Rolling Stone‘s November 2014 article “A Rape on Campus.” Rolling Stone had filed a motion to have that judgment vacated, but agreed to drop its appeal in a confidential settlement.

Let me repeat what I said last November:

It cannot be stated often enough: Jackie Coakley lied about rape. She deliberately defamed the innocent members of a UVA fraternity. Jackie Coakley’s gang-rape hoax — a LIE, a FALSEHOOD, a complete FABRICATION — was cited in testimony before a 2014 U.S. Senate committee by her fellow UVA student Emily Renda.
