Rowling Wins Big in Court

from the take-that,-muggle dept.

J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, won a lopsided victory over a woman who claimed that key elements of the books were stolen from her own, previously published works. Branding the plaintiff a liar, the summary judgement dismissed the suit, fined the plaintiff $30,000, and ordered her to pay a portion of Rowling’s legal fees. Ouch.
