The 10 member jury concluded that the Rolling Stone journalist was responsible for defamation, with actual malice, in the case brought by Nicole Eramo, a U-Va. administrator who oversaw sexual violence cases at the time of the article’s publication. The jury also found the magazine and its publisher responsible for defaming Eramo.
My guess... the Obama Justice Department wasn't involved.
There are a few pieces of good news here. First, the 'journalists' of America are seeing some pushback. They can no longer invent stories from whole cloth like Rolling Stone did in the UVA case. Second, the myth of 'Rape Culture', one of the cornerstones of third wave feminism, is taking a serious hit. The next girl who thinks to invent a rape story will be at least a little more reluctant to do so. The
injustice department may rule the roost with criminal prosecutions, but the civil courts apparently still work. That's a two edged sword at best, but at least it still cuts both ways. That's better than the criminal courts seem to be doing lately.
Don't worry... I'm sure PResident Hillary has a plan to fix that.
