Rolling Stone story about university gang rape 
By: Chan Yuan

(Scroll down for video) Rolling Stone was slapped with a multi million dollar lawsuit after one of its writers fabricated a story about a gang rape that happened at the University of Virginia.

The brothers of the Virginia Alpha Chapter of Phi Kappa Psi, filed the defamation lawsuit in the Charlottesville, Virginia Circuit Court, against Rolling Stone magazine and contributing editor Sabrina Erdely, seeking in excess of $25 million in damages related to the publication of the article “A Rape on Campus: A Brutal Assault and Struggle for Justice at UVA.”

The complaint alleges in great detail how Rolling Stone and Erdely were determined in advance to support a preconceived narrative of college campus sexual assault culture by depicting the most graphic and horrific story they could find, regardless of its truth.

Rolling Stone and Erdely deliberately ignored known facts and readily pursuable leads that would have shown that the allegations of ritualized brutal gang rape were fabricated.

Rolling Stone published the article with reckless disregard for the truth.

The fraternity chapter, its student and alumni members suffered extreme damage to their reputations in the aftermath of the article’s publication and continue to suffer despite the ultimate unraveling of the story.

Innocent brothers were besieged in their residence, physically
threatened, protested against and vilified by unknown assailants, fellow students and the university community.

Impacts of the article were felt well beyond the University of Virginia and Charlottesville.

The original story drew almost 3 million unique visitors to the
RollingStone.com website, and was shared on social media hundreds of thousands times.

For a time, “A Rape on Campus” was the biggest news story in the United States. The chapter and its members became the symbol for rape on college campuses.

The article also subjected the student members and their families to danger and immense stress while jeopardizing the future existence of the chapter.
