“A Rape on Campus”: The Saga Continues – Jackie Coakley Ordered to Comply With Court Orders in Phi Kappa Psi Lawsuit Against Rolling Stone

This is the kind of story that warms even the blackest of hearts (like mine, for example).

Following Nicole Eramo’s successful lawsuit against the pack of gossips and scandal-mongers led by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the University of Virginia’s chapter of Phi Kappa Psi has pressed the gas pedal on its own state court claims against Erdely, Rolling Stone and Wenner Media. Phi Kappa Psi’s wait until the end of Eramo’s lawsuit was good strategy to get an idea of what the defendants would likely argue in its case.

on Monday, Phi Kappa Psi’s lawyers argued a motion to compel Jackie Coakley to comply with a subpeona for documents related to Jackie, Nicole Eramo, Sabrina Erdely, and the false rape claim. The presiding judge agreed with Phi Kappa Psi and ordered that Coakley would have to “substantially comply” with the order.

Phi Kappa Psi is seeking $26.4 million damages from the named defendants. The trial is scheduled for October 23, 2017.

With that in mind, let’s see how Rolling Stone and it’s parent company, Wenner Media, are doing:

According to the New York Post, Wenner is looking to sell its interests in Us Weekly for a cool $100 million. The leading horse in the race to buy is American Media Inc., owner of fine publications such as the National Enquirer and Star Magazine (Celebrity Gossip rags). Wenner is reportedly carrying about $60 million in debt. If the Nicole Eramo verdict is upheld, that makes $63 million. If Phi Kappa Psi wins its lawsuit, punch that total up to $89.4 million.

Rolling Stone & Sabrina Erdely Liable to University of Virginia Official Nicole Eramo for Defamation; $3 Million in Damages

Last Friday…hang on, something is missing here. Somehow, the mood just isn’t right. It needs something appropriate, something to capture the uplifting mood that news like this should invoke.

Ah, here we are. Just hit play and read on.

Last Friday, a federal jury in Charlottesville, VA returned with a judgment on damages against co-defendants Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the author of the Law & Order: SVU fanfiction, the thoroughly, utterly, completely discredited beyond all recovery, story published in Rolling Stone, “A Rape on Campus,” and Rolling Stone magazine in Nicole Eramo’s defamation suit against them:

$3 million.

$3,000,000.

2.41 million pounds.

4149 Bitcoins.

The 10 jurors found that Rolling Stone, in publishing the article, acted with “actual malice” in publishing the 9,000 fictional account of Jackie Coakley being gangraped at the behest of the non-existent Phi Kappa Psi fraternity member, Haven Monahan, during a party that occurred.

Actual malice, as laid out in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964), requires that the plaintiff prove by a preponderance of the evidence (50.1%) that the writer/publisher of the defamatory statements did so with a knowing or reckless lack of investigation.

The breakdown of the $3 million damages award $2 million of liability to Erdely and $1 million to Rolling Stone and its parent company, Wenner Media.

But it’s not over yet.

Rolling Stone and Erdely still have to deal with Phi Kappa Psi’s $25 million lawsuit against them; that trial starts next year.

Between the Rolling Stone case, the total destruction of Gawker, and the rise to prominence of the alternative media, I believe the American public has turned on the traditional/corporate press and is no longer willing to offer them wide latitude in the name of freedom of the press, which was never understood to protect a discrete class of persons who went to journalism school, but the right to exercise speech and transmit ideas using mechanical means (the printing press, leaflets, pamphlets, blogs, vlogs, websites, etc.) People have watched the corporate media manipulate the truth, or outright lie, as in this instance, in the name of pushing a narrative as truth.

These cases will not pose a threat to the First Amendment, but the are a loud, clear indication that the corporate media is in a death spiral and given their actions, they have no interest in trying to pull out of it. And a large segment of the American public has no interest in allowing them to peddle lies and propaganda as truth.

Sabrina Rubin Erdely Notes Reveal That She Was Both Malicious and Incompetent

With the New York case against Rolling Stone up against a roadblock, the Virginia case against the rape hysterics at Rolling Stone and Wenner Media has hit a critical stage with lawyers for Rolling Stone moving for summary judgment (even if everything Eramo says is true, we still win because she has failed to state a claim for which relief can be granted/insufficient facts). Eramo’s lawyers have also filed for summary judgment on several affirmative defenses Rolling Stone might raise later on (throwing parachutes off the plane so Rolling Stone can’t escape).

As part of the motions, some new information has become public. Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the architect of the thoroughly, completely, utterly discredited smear job entitled “A Rape On Campus,” published November 19, 2014 in Rolling Stone took copious notes during the five months she “researched” this bit of rape hysteria propaganda. She also sent emails during the “investigation” and after publication of the smear job. All of this was discoverable (Eramo’s lawyers had the right to request production and did so). One of those emails from December 5, 2014, from Erdely to Rolling Stone senior editors Will Dana and Sean Woods, breathlessly entitled “Our worst nightmare” detailed how Erdely no longer trusted Jackie Coakley and her 2012 rape fantasy of being drugged and raped on a broken glass table for three hours by the non-existent Haven Monahan and his evil cabal of frat-bros as part of an initiation rite.

But how did this loss of trust come to be? What did Erdely, in his tireless five months methodical of research miss? Well, she missed what the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity issued a statement on after Erdely published her hit piece: THERE WAS NO PARTY AT PHI KAPPA PSI HOUSE ON THE NIGHT JACKIE CLAIMED SHE WAS RAPED.

A plot hole so big you could drive an 18-wheeler through it.

But that’s not the fun part of these motions. The real fun is that, according to Erdely’s own notes and emails, Jackie Coakley’s story was inconsistent before she ever published the story.

But wait, it gets even better!

According to the motions, Jackie’s story shares significant elements with books about rape, specifically gang rape, and the plot of an episode of “Law & Order: SVU” that aired before Jackie Coakley spoke to Sabrina Erdely.

But wait, it gets even better!

According to Erdely’s own notes, Jackie mentioned these books, and the Law & Order episode to Erdely in their very first interview.

All of this came out of the 431 pages of notes that Erdely used to write the hatchet job she published in Rolling Stone. She interview Jackie Coakley six times. She even lied her way into the Phi Kappa Psi house to get a first-hand look at the place (interesting that she never bothered to ask whether “Haven Monahan” was a member of the fraternity, or if they had a party on the date in question, but feminists will never let a little thing like facts fuck up their narrative). The woman Jackie Coakley claimed had been her “friend” for years, did any interview that she had only known Coakley for a few months prior to the false rape. Jackie lacked any scarring consistent with being raped on a “broken glass table for three hours.” (A person would look like a country mile of bad road if they even laid bare-backed on broken glass, let alone rolled around in it for hours). Most damning of all is that notes indicate that Erdely was fully aware of the inconsistencies in Jackie Coakley’s store and decided to publish anyway.

A funny note in an entirely unfunny story, Erdely’s notes include a statement from Jackie’s boyfriend (Possibly “The Notorious Simp” Connor McGovern) that he hadn’t seen any marks on her back.

In an unpublished statement prepared by Erdely and Rolling Stone, they state the following:

“Obviously, we regret any factual errors in any story….But Rolling Stone believes the essential point of Jackie’s narrative is, in fact, true: a young woman suffered a horrific crime at a party, and a prestigious university reacted with indifference to her claim. This happens too often at college campuses all over America. Any mistakes we made were honest ones, trying hard to create a narrative and an investigation that would improve the prevention, investigation and prosecution of sexual violence. For that we would never apologize.”

Pay very close attention to what they just said. “We regret any factual errors in any story, but…” well, without the facts, what are we talking about? What are we discussing? Some shit you made up? Your delusions? Everyone is entitled to hold an opinion, how ever wrong it may be, but no one is entitled to their own facts, and certainly not to pass off their opinions as facts or worse, make up facts.

Then there’s that “but” which translates to “forget everything I just said” meaning that Rolling Stone does not, in fact, regret any factual errors in the story, only that other, more diligent writers caught their errors.

“Rolling Stone believes the essential point of Jackie’s narrative is, in fact, true…” Look at how much bullshit Erdely and Rolling Stone just packed into two sentences; “We regret factual errors, except we don’t, but the narrative, contrary to the facts, is true.”

The narrative trumps the facts. Or, as the equally disgraced Dan Rather pithily described the phenomenon that permeates journalism generally and rape hysteria entirely:

Fake, but accurate.

Jackie Coakley Created Haven Monahan’s Email Account; Coakley’s Lawyers Hid Evidence

This whole UVA/Rolling Stone story is getting really ridiculous at this point.

Nicole Eramo, the UVA Dean reported in the now-discredited-as-a-complete-fabrication story “A Rape on Campus,” penned by the equally discredited propagandist, Sabrina Rubin Erdely back in November 2014, has some new ammunition in her lawsuit against Rolling Stone et al.: A subpoena served on Yahoo for production of documents related to the account identified to “Haven Monahan,” Jackie’s fictional boyfriend/rape facilitator have shown that the account was created on October 2, 2012, one day before “someone” (looking at you Jackie) sent an email from the account to Ryan Duffin, an actual student at UVA, professing Jackie’s undying love for Duffin.

You dodged a bullet, Ryan. A crazy, crazy bullet.

But that’s not the best part. The best part is that Jackie’s lawyers, in filings to the court on March 22, 2016, Jackie’s lawyers swore on a stack of Bibles, Torahs, and Qurans, that Jackie had no knowledge of the email account and no access to the email account.

Now, guess when the Yahoo documents show the Haven Monahan email account was last accessed?

Marsh 18, 2016.

Guess where it was last accessed from?

The offices of Stein, Mitchell, Cipollone, Beato, & Missner LLP, Jackie’s attorneys (who are representing her pro bono, by the way).

Oops.

Have you ever heard the fable about the kid who gets busted by mom with their hand stuck in the cookie jar because they didn’t want to let go of the handful of cookies?

This is what it looks like.

Now, Eramo’s lawyers have filed documents with the court which, to put not too fine a point on it, that Stein Mitchell is playing hide the ball with evidence, that Jackie is up to her chubby little eyeballs in bullshit and that she is Spartacus…I mean, Haven Monahan.

Now, I understand why nobody is suing Jackie Coakley in her own person (probably because she doesn’t have anything worth taking and the second or third rule of torts is “always hit the guy with the deepest pockets”) but Jesus Christ, can’t “Rolling Stone” attach her to the case? Maybe Eramo or the Phi Kappa Psi adds her to the case as a co-defendant?

As for Jackie’s white shoe firm, it’s bad enough that they concealed evidence; a lot of civil litigators like to play that game, but these assholes flat-out lied to the court about complying with a discovery order. Can the judge at least lock them up for a week? Just to demonstrate to the rest of the D.C. lawyers that this sort of thing is not acceptable?

Can the judge also have Jackie Coakley jailed for contempt or exiled to a sandbar in Alaska? If nobody can take a little justice from out of Jackie’s wallet, at least take a little from out of her ass? Jackie Coakley told this bullshit lie for years. Repeated it to multiple people. Created email accounts and phone numbers to support her lies. Now, by some joke that only God could appreciate, retains these overpriced lawyers to defend her lie to the death.

Believe Her.

Federal District Judge In UVA Defamation Case Orders Jackie Coakley to Turn Over Texts and Emails

Judge Glen Conrad stated that he would grant UVA dean Nicole Eramo’s request for discovery of texts and emails between Jackie Coakley, the source of Rolling Stone’s fabricated story that she was gangraped by members of Phi Kappa Psi, and officials at UVA and employees of Rolling Stone magazine. Judge Conrad has yet to rule on discovery texts and emails from Jackie to her friends and relatives during the relevant time period. Jackie is not a party to Eramo’s defamation suit.

This is getting interesting. I’m not sure why Rolling Stone isn’t on their knees begging for settlement of this thing.
