UVA Dean Sues Rolling Stone for Defamation

The associate dean of the University of Virginia has filed a defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone in the wake of its retracted rape story.
Nicole Eramo filed the suit against the magazine and the story's author Sabrina Erdely for "the publication of the and later discredited article" entitled "A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA."
The article describes the brutal rape of a freshman identified as "Jackie." Reporting mistakes made by Erdely and Rolling Stone were detailed by an investigation conducted by Columbia Journalism School.
