'Harry Potter' Plagiarism Lawsuit Comes to a New Chapter

March 23, 2011 02:12:48 GMT


A judge in Britain has ordered the plaintiffs in an ongoing "Harry Potter" plagiarism lawsuit to pay a massive $2.4 million if they want to continue the case. Paul Allen, the trustee of late writer Adrian Jacobs' estate, filed suit against "Potter" author J.K. Rowling and her U.K. publishers Bloomsbury back in 2009, alleging her 2000 novel "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" was based on Jacobs' "Willy The Wizard" stories.

Last year, High Court judge Justice David Kitchin refused a request from Rowling's lawyers to have the case dismissed, even though he admitted a victory for Allen would be "improbable". Kitchin has now ordered Allen to pay 65 per cent of the court costs faced by Rowling and Bloomsbury if he wants to continue the case.

The producers had to cut a segment where Charlie slammed a toothbrush on Jimmy's desk and said, "That whore Sarah Silverman left this at my house". Kimmel felt it was "insulting" to his ex-girlfriend so they left it out from the broadcast and went straight from Sheen putting a mug on his desk to Sheen saying goodbye.
