The plagiarism case brought seven years ago by the estate of Adrian Jacobs against J. K. Rowling has been dismissed by a UK court. Trustee Paul Allen had been ordered to post a bond before the case could go forward. Because he failed to do so this week, the court dismissed the action. The estate could still bring the action in another jurisdiction; however, a U.S. court dismissed a similar action earlier this year.
