Elisabeth Hasselbeck Wins Plagiarism Lawsuit

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, (X17online) - Elisabeth Hasselbeck won a plagiarism lawsuit Monday against author Susan Hassett, the woman who accused The View co-host of ripping off passages from her 2008 book on celiac disease.

A judge in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts ruled no evidence was found to support Hassett's claim.

Hassett says she sent Hasselbeck her self-published book, Living With Celiac Disease, in April of 2008 to help with Hasselbeck's own struggle with the disease. Two weeks after the book was sent, Hasselbeck signed a deal to released her own book on the same subject: The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide.

This is Hassett's second suit against Hasselbeck on the book; the first was dismissed by a federal judge last year.

Hasselbeck's lawyer Orin Snyder said in a statement, "[The decision is] a complete victory. It confirms that Elisabeth wrote her best-selling book The G-Free Diet based on her own personal experiences and did not copy a thing from the plaintiff. We are grateful that the federal court fully vindicated Elisabeth, seeing through this misguided lawsuit."
