|Give Harper Lee Back Her Book Royalties|
Harper Lee is well-known as author of one of America's most beloved classic novels, "To Kill A Mockingbird." But the book's copyright and royalties were stolen from her years ago.
Lee's story about racial injustice in Jim Crow Alabama won a Pulitzer and gained even more fame with Gregory Peck's portrayal of lawyer Atticus Finch in the film version.
Now in her 80s, this intensely private author has made headlines with her own legal battle - first to restore her book rights - and now to regain the stolen royalties. The suit says Samuel Pinkus, the son-in-law of her former long-time literary agent, took advantage of Lee while she was recovering from a stroke and tricked her into signing over her rights to him and a company he controlled.
