Judge Tosses Lawsuit Against "Three Cups of Tea" Author

U. S. District Court Judge Sam Haddon has dismissed a lawsuit against author Greg Mortenson, ruling that the plaintiffs in the suit, who alleged that Mr. Mortenson misstated facts in his bestseller Three Cups of Tea, failed to make out a prima facie case. The plaintiffs had claimed fraud, racketeering, and deceit against the author, publisher, and the directors of the Institute Mr. Mortensen established, the Central Asia Institute. More here from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
