"Hopefully, Rolling Stone and other members of the media will be more careful in the future, and that's probably good, so maybe this is a win-win", added Tobias.

The settlement brings an end to a lawsuit that had roiled the U-Va. community with a case study in the practice and ethics of journalism. Locke says Eramo can move on and focus on supporting victims of sexual assault.

Eramo testified that she faced threats, lost professional credibility and lost her ability to work as an advocate for sexual-assault prevention.

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. Eramo argued that contrary to the story's narrative, she actively tried to help a student, identified in the story as Jackie, who claimed she was raped at a fraternity house, and did not attempt to persuade Jackie to remain silent about the allegations.

Eramo's lawyer Libby Locke told BuzzFeed the two sides reached an "amicable" settlement.

He is especially pleased that Mexico is part of this bid and that's in the last few days we've got further encouragement on that. It looks like the US and CONCACAF know it. "We have a unique opportunity to be the first country to host three World Cups ".

The article was eventually retracted in April 2015 following the Columbia Journalism School's report on the article and its inconsistencies.

Jackie's tale "had all the elements of a flawless story", Clare said. The fraternity is suing Rolling Stone for $25 million. According to court documents, the defendants did not object to the request. A lawyer for Rolling Stone declined to comment.

"This experience has been devastating to me, both professionally and personally". The settlement came after Rolling Stone challenged a jury's November verdict awarding Eramo $3 million.

Eramo filed a motion for voluntary dismissal of her defamation lawsuit on Tuesday.
