UPDATE: Court Shares 'The View' of Hasselbeck in Plagiarism Suit

Cover of "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free ...Cover via AmazonSiding with Survivor veteran and co-host of The View, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts found yesterday that the 33-year-old Hasselbeck did not plagiarize another author's work when she published The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide (2009)."

Susan Hassett, self-published author of Living With Celiac Disease, failed to convince the court that Hasselbeck, who suffers from the digestive condition, copied from her work to produce the best-selling G-Free Diet. This was Hassett's second go-around at Hasselbeck after the court dismissed the plaintiff's initial plagiarism claim against Hasselbeck last year(see "TUOL" posts 11/30/09 & 6/24/09).
