From The Daily Mail:
Ann Rule launched legal proceedings against the Seattle Weekly after it ran an article accusing her of ‘sloppy storytelling’ in her book Heart Full of Lies, which is based on the story of Liysa Northon, who was jailed for the manslaughter of her husband.
Ms Rule maintained the newspaper printed the review ‘unedited’, and failed to disclose that its author, Rick Swart, had entered into a relationship with Northon.
As a general rule, authors shouldn’t sue over bad reviews, but it would be very difficult to say that the reviewer wasn’t biased.
The Seattle Weekly replied to Ann Rule’s lawsuit, but apparently no one at the weekly proofed the page. At this time, it’s one long unreadable block of text.
