Split Judgment Issued In Authors’ Copyright, Online Defamation Suit

Mealey's (March 13, 2018, 8:30 AM EDT) -- SALT LAKE CITY — An author whose novel was copied by another author was granted summary judgment on the matter of copyright infringement liability in a March 9 ruling; however, a Utah federal judge found that online postings and comments about the plaintiff constituted unactionable opinion, granting judgment to the defendant on defamation claims (Rachel Nunes v. Tiffanie Rushton, No. 2:14-cv-00627, D. Utah, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 39380).
