The entire Fraternity should sue now.

A federal jury in Virginia found that Rolling Stone magazine, parent company Wenner Media and reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely were guilty of defamation.

The defamation case concerns a November 2014 cover story in Rolling Stone magazine about an alleged rape at the University of Virginia. The story was later discredited and the magazine retracted it, in April 2015.

After Rolling Stone retracted the story, U.Va. dean of students Nicole Eramo — who was portrayed very negatively in the article — sued Rolling Stone for defamation, arguing that the magazine should have known that the story was false.

After deliberating for 14 hours over multiple days, a federal jury on Friday found that the defendants in the case acted with “actual malice” and were therefore guilty of defamation. The jury will determine the amount of damages to award to Eramo at a later date. Eramo is seeking at least $7.5 million.

We all know that sex assault victims NEVER LIE!

This makes reporting an actual assault much harder on women.

Hillary and those women accusing trump need to apologize to all ACTUAL assault victims.

One of the major problems is false accusers rarely get prosecuted.

In a galaxy far far away...
I nominate Rolling Stone for the 2016 JoeyB Dolezal Award. The annual JBDA is bestowed on any person, group, organization, etc. that's demonstrated a unique ability to lie about anything no matter how easily it can be disproven.
