'Rolling Stone' Settles Defamation Case With Former U.Va. Associate Dean

Rolling Stone appealed the decision, but with this settlement, the case will end. "It allows Nicole to move on and really focus on what she does best, which is help victims of sexual assault".

Attorneys for Rolling Stone and Nicole Eramo announced they've reached a confidential settlement over the 2014 story "A Rape on Campus".

Eramo served as UVA's associate dean of students at the time and believed that Erdely's portrayal made her "chief villain of the story".

An investigation by The Washington Post showed that aspects of the account were not true. The story followed a student named "Jackie", who alleged that she had been raped at a Phi Kappa Psi fraternity party.

In November 2016 a jury determined Rolling Stone, Erdely, and publisher Wenner Media defamed Eramo.

Eramo's lawyer, Libby Locke, told BuzzFeed News that an "amicable" settlement was reached, but that the terms are confidential.

A police investigation later found no evidence to back up Jackie's claims.

Obama, Merkel will meet in Germany during Trump's trip to Europe
Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel enjoyed a drink together during the former President's 2013 trip to Berlin . The discussion is being organized jointly by the conference, which is held every two years, and the Obama Foundation.

Jackie's tale "had all the elements of a flawless story", Clare said. The Rolling Stone article was eventually retracted.

While the local chapter will produce the documents requested, he said, "The guys in Des Moines who are busted for hazing or drinking are categorically irrelevant".

Meanwhile, while the case with the university administrator may be over, Rolling Stone continues to be in court against the fraternity portrayed in the story.

"This experience has been devastating to me, both professionally and personally".

Rolling Stone filed a motion to vacate that judgment, but then agreed to settle the case before a judge could rule.

Eramo was awarded $3 million by a Virginia Federal jury last summer - $2 million from Erdely, who the jury found to have acted with actual malice towards Eramo, and $1 million from Rolling Stone.
