• 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.

London Trial

The Boston Globe has one of the more detailed articles on the London trial against Random House.

According to the Globe article, Random House lawyer John Baldwin, "said many important themes of "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" did not feature in "The Da Vinci Code," particularly the idea that a secretive order called the Priory of Sion exists and seeks to restore descendants of Jesus Christ to the thrones of Europe.

"Baldwin said this was a 'massive point' in the earlier book but was not stressed by Brown.

Interestingly enough, the Random House lawyers in my case are stressing similarities like this from HBHG in order to divert attention away from the similarities with my own works.

It seems clear that Random House intends to further misrepresent things from one court to another in hopes that no one is watching what's happening on the other side of the Atlantic.
