George Kovach’s stepmother, Cecilia Kovachova, is believed to be the inspiration for a character named Cilka who appeared in the first book and who received her own novel last fall.
Kovach has previously sought an apology, clarification about what Morris invented, and donations to a charity; now, the Bookseller reports, he has decided to bring the matter to court.
English and Welsh law don’t allow relatives to file for reputational damage to a deceased person, so Kovach’s lawyer is using Slovakian law to pursue the matter in US court, according to the Bookseller.
