RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Lawyers for a University of Virginia dean say the woman whose allegations of a campus rape were published in a since-debunked Rolling Stone article should have to reveal text messages and other communications, adding there’s no evidence the alleged assault occurred.

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports (bit.ly/1RssyiB) that lawyers for U.Va. Associate Dean Nicole Eramo said in recent court filings that the woman referred to only as “Jackie” November 2014 article is a “serial liar who invented people, events and text messages.”

Jackie’s lawyers say she shouldn’t have to hand over that information because she is not a party to the lawsuit. They say because she’s entitled to legal protections as a victim of an alleged sexual assault.

Eramo is seeking more than $7.5 million from Rolling Stone.
