A judge has ruled in favor in Stephenie Meyer and Hachette Book Group, dismissing Jordan Scott’s claim of copyright infringement. Scott had accused Meyer of plagiarism.
The Honorable Otis D. Wright II of the U.S. District Court said in his ruling that Breaking Dawn and Scott’s 2006 vampire novel The Nocturne (Yorkshire Publishing Group, 2009) have little in common and that the “characters in the two works are vastly different.”
I feel sorry for the clerk that had to read it. Breaking Dawn sucks.
No pun intended.
