• 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.

I have a second blog, Writopia
which focuses on Dan Brown's pattern of falsehoods
and embellishment of his personal achievements.

An Interesting Development

Publishing guru M.J. Rose emailed me last night about a post on her widely read blog, Buzz, Balls & Hype.

"Book Relief and a Curious Coincidence," she wrote.

"According to a press release issued on Wednesday, Random House also announced that they will make a $500,000 donation to the American Red Cross's Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund, along with matching employee contributions to.

"In a curious note, on Saturday, author Lewis Perdue who has been suing Random and Dan Brown for plagiarism said, on his blog that if Random did exactly that he would drop his appeal."

She goes on to quote the previous post here on Da Vinci Crock and ask me for comment, but I cannot do that at this time.
