• 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.
  • NO expert testimony was allowed despite three international plagiarism experts who were willing to testif that it existed.
  • 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.

Brown's Witless Statement Critiqued

This blog post, "Dan Brown's statement to the court tells us how little he knows," by Sandra Miesel (co-author with Carl Olson of, "The Da Vinci Hoax"), offers a concise summary.

There are more details, of course and I'd urge everyone to read Dan's witness statement to discover things for themselves.

I don't think calling him a dim bulb or the dumbest member of his family is very helpful.

Miss Snark the agent had a post about the case and almost all the posters supported Brown. That seems to be the consensus out there justified or not.

Same deal on CNN with two talking head lawyers. Ideas won't cut it. This looks like it will be dismissed.

I'd agree ... Not necessarily because there is NOT a case, but because they have fumbled it...and Baigent was an awful, awful witness ...

Brown was well-coached and as well prepared as he could be given the fact that Blythe is the Lady McBeth here ...

Baigent was disorganized, often incoherent, testified badly and contradicted himself more than RH.

It was a missed opportunity for sure. Well hopefully you'll get him on the pilfering of original fake history. Plagiarists are falling left and right in journalism. The Redstate blogger is the latest.

Boy the blitz of paperback DVC is staggering. A myriad of sizes and shapes. I've never seen anything like it.
