University of Virginia graduates sue Rolling Stone over retracted rape story
RICHMOND, Va. -- Court documents show three University of Virginia graduates and members of a fraternity profiled in a debunked account of a gang rape in a retracted Rolling Stone magazine story are suing the publication and the article's author.
The three graduates filed suit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in New York. They are also suing Rolling Stone's publisher, Wenner Media.
A lawyer for the men said they suffered "vicious and hurtful attacks" because of the inaccuracies in the November 2014 article, written by journalist Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
A top university official dealing with sexual assaults at the Charlottesville school also is suing the school.
Rolling Stone and the author couldn't immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.
