Phi Kappa Psi, the fraternity where an alleged gang rape occurred, has sued Rolling Stone and the author of a sensational article for publishing the account. Rolling Stone relied on the allegations of the alleged victim, but subsequent investigations found no evidence to substantiate the claims. Three individual members of the fraternity are suing for at least $225,000 each and an associate dean is suing for $7.5 million dollars. Virginia Lawyers Weekly has the story.
