Jury Awards $3 Million To UVA Administrator In Rolling Stone Defamation Case:
A jury has awarded $3 million to a University of Virginia administrator who won a defamation case against Rolling Stone magazine for its discredited account of a gang rape at a fraternity house.
Nicole Eramo was awarded the damages three days after the same jury ruled for her in a lawsuit against the magazine, its publisher and reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
The jury said Erdely must pay $2 million and Rolling Stone $1 million. However, Rolling Stone is covering the cost of Erdely’s damages, as well as her legal fees.
Eramo argued that the November 2014 story, “A Rape on Campus,” portrayed her as callous and indifferent to the plight of the alleged sexual assault victim, who was identified only as Jackie. Eramo had sought $7.5 million from the jury.
