Rolling Stone settles with U-Va. dean who sued over discredited article
Lawyers for Rolling Stone and Nicole Eramo, a former University of Virginia associate dean, have reached a confidential settlement over a 2014 story in the magazine about an alleged gang rape on campus.
News wires lit up Tuesday night with word of the settlement, but missing was how much.
Rolling Stone attorney Jonathon Fazzola disagreed and said embarrassing members affect both the national organization and chapters throughout the country.
Rolling Stone called the settlement an "amicable resolution".
Another lawsuit against the magazine, waged by the fraternity, remains pending. The damages award was $1 million against Rolling Stone, and an additional $2 million against writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely.

UVA administrator Nicole Eramo filed notice late Tuesday in federal court in Virginia that she was dropping her lawsuit against Rolling Stone, the magazine's parent company Wenner Media, and reporter Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
Scott Sexton, an attorney for Rolling Stone, told the jurors in his closing statement that the magazine "acknowledges huge errors in not being more dogged".
Rolling Stone filed a motion to vacate that judgment, the first step toward an appeal, but then agreed to settle the case before a judge could rule.
Nicole Eramo's lawyer confirmed to WTOP the two parties settled the dispute amicably, but that the terms of the settlement are confidential. "They're inextricably linked", he said.
