• 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.

Class action

As I predicted on January 11, at least two class action lawsuits have been filed against Random House in Los Angeles and Chicago regarding falsehoods associated with James Frey's A Million Little Pieces.

The same sources who dropped that information to me indicate that similar marketing tactics employed in connection with The Da Vinci Code may also be targeted, either to try and prove that Random House has a pattern of engaging in this sort of thing, or as separate class action lawsuits against Code.

This is significant because-- in addition to the continued insistance that Brown's work is factual (in the face of so much credible evidence to the contrary) -- Random House has also used a number of biographical fictions and distortions regarding Brown and his wife in Code's marketing blitz.

Read the Chicago legal filing and that from Los Angeles.
