Hey y'all.  This time I am profiling Jackie Coakly.  She created a fictisious rape account that was published by Rolling Stone magazine.  Rolling Stone got sued.  HAHAHA! But Jackie was never punished.  Jackie Coakly is a liar.  But, she is yet another example of a strong and independent woman!

After Settlement With Fraternity, The Rolling Stone Rape Hoax Saga Is Officially Over

Rolling Stone is only now able to put this travesty behind them, at least legally.

More than three years after Rolling Stone published the most significant false accusation of rape since the Duke Lacrosse hoax, the saga is officially over for the magazine.

That’s right, Rolling Stone is only now able to put this travesty behind them — at least legally. The magazine reached a final settlement in late December with the members of the fraternity that were falsely maligned in the story. The details have not been disclosed, but at least two members of the fraternity will be the beneficiary of the settlement. Three fraternity members – George Elias IV, Ross Fowler and Stephen Hadford alleged there was enough information in the article to identify them as some of the potential rapists in the story.  The original story was told by a young woman named Jackie Coakley — identified only as “Jackie” in the article — who said she was taken on a date by a handsome member of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at the University of Virginia, and then led back to the fraternity house where several other members of the fraternity violently gang-raped her on top of a broken glass table.

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. A year later, a judge dismissed their lawsuit, claiming “the article’s details about the attackers are too vague and remote from the plaintiffs’ circumstances to be ‘of and concerning’ them.” Bizarrely, U.S. District Judge P. 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.  The 2nd Circuit reversed Castel’s decision in September 2017, after Rolling Stone had reached settlements on two other lawsuits brought in the wake of the infamous article. The federal appellate circuit stated readers “could plausibly conclude that many or all fraternity members participated in alleged gang rape as an initiation ritual and all members knowingly turned a blind eye to the brutal crimes.” Rolling Stone and the fraternity members reached a settlement three months later.

Those who were wronged by the article have received compensation for their suffering, but only Rolling Stone has been punished for its role in the fake story. Will Dana, who was the managing editor of the magazine at the time the false story was published, left the magazine in 2015, but was not fired. Publisher Jann Wenner agreed to sell his share of the magazine in 2017, meaning he would walk away with millions. Erdely has not written anything since and appears to still be underground. In a strange bit of irony, the last thing she ever tweeted was a reply to ProPublica reporter Pamela Colloff about correcting a tweet to label Erdely as a “journalist,” instead of simply a “woman.”  Shortly after this tweet, the article began to fall apart. She hadn’t even done the most basic journalism, like confirming that the man Coakley went on a date with actually existed (he did not). In fact, Jackie made him up in an elaborate attempt to win the affections of another student.  The magazine itself was punished with a blow to its credibility and the settlements. 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.

Sullivan extended a voluntary ban on social activities for months after the article was punished, and required organizations to sign new agreements in order to resume such activities. She never apologized for her behavior and rush to judgement.

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.

So much for the much vaunted student conduct code that 'ensures' academic, ethical and moral character from all enrolled students at institutions of higher learning.  From the Internet perspective however, this story as beyond yesterday's news ... three years is an eternity on the Internet.

Civil court vs criminal court, she was indeed lucky that there were no criminal allegations against her.

Hit them where it hurts right in the wallet. It would be interesting if Rolling Stones could sue her for reparations due to the lawsuits brought against them. It is a shame that the policy still is believe the 'victim'.  That statement alone undermines our legal system in the states. The foundation being innocent until proven guilty. At the end of the day they are but words. I hope this woman hits the wall hard and fast.

It certainly is old news, but still relevant for what we do here at TIM.  Men are at risk of false accusations.  In this case a false accusation exposed the bias and corruption of a famed media outlet.  Think about that.  A woman goes to UVA in search of a story and finds someone who is lying through her teeth.  Instead of fact checking, an insidious narrative is created and publish that directly effect both men an women for the worse.  That aspect never gets old, it's a cautionary tale of the ills of today's society.  Men need to be aware, men need to be proactive and have enough wherewithal to avoid trick bitches like Jackie.

Check Travis.  As metoo has shown the world, men can be dragged down decades after a false report is made, but females continue to walk with impunity.  The Internet however is all about the now. What is happening and who did it.  That 'now' culture does not care about the past, particularly in view of calling females into question.

Great post and social commentary.

The reality comes in how men still paid for the lies of the female, it was just different men in the end. The system will do anything it can to prevent a female paying or facing consequences unless absolutely forced into it. This will have to change before we can start seeing justice become something that matters again within the judicial system. So many men have had their lives turned upside down and destroyed, due to the accusation without any evidence that was later proven to be a lie. The burden of proof is on the accused, making men guilty until proven innocent.
