But, just as in the Duke Lacrosse case, many of the people who enabled the false accusation and unfairly deemed the fraternity as guilty from the start were unharmed by the article.
UVA President Teresa Sullivan still has her job, even though she prematurely punished the entire Greek system at the university in the wake of the article.
Ashe Schow is a senior editor at The Daily Wire, and a senior political columnist for the New York Observer.
She also contributes to a weekly segment on the Enough Already podcast.
And Coakley, the woman who made up the story that led to tarnished reputations of her alma mater and an innocent fraternity, never saw any sort of punishment except for lies being debunked in the national media.
UVA never punished her for lying, and she faced no legal consequences.
Clearly, Coakley was an emotionally disturbed individual, and many shy away from taking on someone like that even if they did hurt other people (even though we could claim that anyone who commits a heinous crime is also disturbed).
The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) called the fourth quarter of 2013 a particularly strong one for commercial and multifamily mortgage originations, with a total volume of around 0 billion in closed loans, the highest volume since 2007.

That’s right, Rolling Stone is only now able to put this travesty behind them — at least legally.
The three named brothers filed their lawsuit in July 2015, seven months after the article was published.
They each claimed they were harassed by family, friends, and coworkers as potential rapists in the months following publication. Kevin Castel in Manhattan, who dismissed the lawsuit, also wrote: “Their defamation claims are directed toward a report about events that simply did not happen.” Yes, Castel, that is how defamation works.
