To Kill a Mockingbird (book)

To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee has settled a New York lawsuit against two of the defendants she sued in May to re-secure the copyright to her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

A court filing Friday in federal court in Manhattan says Lee’s lawsuit against defendants Leigh Ann Winick and Gerald Posner has been dismissed. A lawyer for the two said a settlement with the remaining defendants is likely to be reached next week.

Attorney Vincent Carissimi wouldn’t disclose the terms of the settlement. A lawyer for Lee did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

The 87-year-old author sued her former literary agent’s son-in-law, Samuel Pinkus; companies he allegedly created; and alleged associates of his. She claimed they had failed to protect the book’s copyright.
