‘Jackie’ from Rolling Stone UVA article may finally speak at defamation trial

For the first time since Rolling Stone magazine published a shocking story about a brutal gang rape at the University of Virginia two years ago, the public may soon hear from the young woman at the center of the now discredited article.

A defamation trial against the magazine is set to begin on Monday over A Rape on Campus, the November 2014 article about a woman identified only as “Jackie” and her harrowing account of being gang-raped in a fraternity initiation. University administrator Nicole Eramo, who counseled Jackie and claims the story cast her, Eramo, as its “chief villain”, is seeking $7.85m.
