My Favorite Author is Being Sued

Apparently the plaintiffs do not like the way they were portrayed. Sometimes the truth hurts. They did pursue innocent men.

"Novelist John Grisham has been named in a libel lawsuit filed over The Innocent Man, a nonfiction best-seller he wrote about the 1982 murder of a cocktail waitress.

The suit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court, named several other defendants including Robert Mayer of Santa Fe, author of a similar true-crime book, The Dreams of Ada, published in 1987. The suit seeks relief of more than $75,000 and demands a jury trial. The plaintiffs are Pontotoc County District Attorney Bill Peterson and Gary Rogers, a former agent for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation." |Read more|
