After hearing more than two weeks’ worth of evidence, jurors ruled Friday that Rolling Stone magazine and a writer defamed a University of Virginia administrator in a 2014 story about an alleged sexual assault, media outlets reported.
Word of the jury decision came Friday afternoon in multiple news outlets.
School administrator Nicole Eramo claimed the 2014 article portrayed her as a villain who discouraged the woman identified only as Jackie from reporting the incident to police. A police investigation found no evidence to back up Jackie’s claims.
Rolling Stone’s attorneys said there was no evidence that the reporter knew what she was writing about Eramo was false or had serious doubts about whether it was true.
They should throw the book at them. This was a social justice warrior witch hunt. They wanted to destroy the boys and they didn’t care how they did it. These are the purveyors of the vile belief that when a woman says a man is guilty, he is guilty, presumption of innocence be damned. These people are totalitarian fiends. Lock them up.
