We have a lawsuit in copygate!
Author Nora Roberts is suing Cristiane Serruya, the romance novelist accused of plagiarizing forty writers.
Roberts is seeking damages of at least $25,000 from Serruya — which would be donated to a literacy organization — as well as a halt to Serruya’s book sales until copied material is removed, according to the New York Times.
The Times couldn’t get Serruya to comment but quoted an email from Serruya to Roberts’s publicist saying that she “never intentionally plagiarized anyone.”
Serruya has previously blamed ghostwriters for the plagiarized material, explaining that she turned to ghostwriters because of industry pressure to continually publish new books.
