Editor Will Dana is the first to leave his position at Rolling Stones magazine nearly eight months after running false claims about an alleged “rape culture” within a University of Virginia fraternity.
UVA dean, Nicole Eramo was noted in CNN Money’s article for already having filed a $7.5 million lawsuit for actual and punitive damages for Rolling Stone’s characterization of her in the article. As reported by CNN, Rolling Stones now faces multiple lawsuits:
Three members of a University of Virginia fraternity sued Rolling Stone magazine Wednesday for a discredited story accusing frat members of gang raping a woman.
The suit also names the magazine's publisher, Wenner Media, and the reporter, Sabrina Erdely.
