• Random House sued ME; not the other way around.
  • Random House filed suit to silence the facts I was posting on the web.
  • There has been NO trial on the facts, only the Random House effort to prevent a trial.
  • The only sworn statements made under penalty of perjury are affidavits from me and my experts, nothing from RH.
  • The judge refused to consider any expert analysis.
  • Despite suing me first, Random House & Sony UNsuccessfully demanded that I pay the $310,000 in legal fees they spent to sue me.
  • Contrary to the Random House spin, I am not alleging plagiarism of general issues, but of several hundred very specific ones.
  • This is not about money. Anything I win goes to charity.

AP's Errors Are Now Understandable

As a former wire service reporter myself, I understand that the AP reporter did not have the time to read all the filings. Indeed, NO reporter has taken the time to read all the filings.

So, in order to get the story out, the AP reporter grabbed the judge's decision and quoted from it, trusting that the statements were accurate and unaware that many were not.

What's needed is an enterprising journalist who will take the time to read everything in the filings.

To paraphrase Mulder, "The truth is IN there."
