• 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.

Upcoming 'Vanity Fair' Article Raises New Issues About 'DaVinci Code' Author

The July 2006 issue of Vanity Fair, which is scheduled to be on the news stands in New York and L.A. tomorrow (June 13 for rest of world) , has the world's first piece on the controversy that isn't scripted all or in large part from a Random House PR handout.

Newspaper trade magazine, Publisher's Weekly, is the first to summarize Vanity Fair Contributing Editor Seth Mnookin's piece.
