He could, but all his work and income would go to the default judgement.

Pretty tough pill for a student to swallow in an industry that it hard to crack.
Seems to me one of the first rules for a journalist, albeit even a student is to verify one's sources. I'm not sure how much sympathy I would have if the sources were questionable AND he still ran with it.

Integrity is a cornerstone in that industry, for the good one's anyway.
