Rolling Stone’s lawyers have responded to the complaint filed by a University of Virginia dean. The dean was cast in an unfavorable light in the now discredited Rolling Stone University of Virginia sexual assault article.
This is really just the first step towards Rolling Stone settling this case. Liability is a foregone conclusion. The real question is how much will be paid and what sort of public apology will be issued. Remember that when Rolling Stone issued its press release in the wake of its sexual assault article falling apart no apology was made to the dean.
It can be certainly expected that the dean’s lawyers will extract an apology as a part of the resolution of this case.
