Rolling Stone found liable in $7.5M defamation lawsuit

"A federal jury has found that Rolling Stone magazine and writer Sabrina Erdely defamed a former University of Virginia associate dean in a since-retracted story about campus rape.
It took the jury three days of deliberations to decide that Erdely should be liable for defamation, with actual malice, for her “A Rape on Campus” feature story, which has since been discredited.
Rolling Stone magazine and Wenner Media are also responsible for defaming former UVA associate dean Nicole Eramo, jurors decided."
