Winfrey plagiarism lawsuit dismissed

Author Charles Harris filed suit against the media mogul last year (10), alleging Winfrey read questions from his political booklet, How America Elects Her Presidents, during an installment of The Oprah Winfrey Show that aired in February 2009.

He claimed to have sent her copies of the publication back in 2008 when she began supporting Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

Harris filed suit in Pennsylvania accusing her of copyright infringement for allegedly using his materials in her show, and Winfrey's legal team subsequently filed a motion to dismiss the case and seeking sanctions for a frivolous lawsuit.

U.S. district court judge Jan DuBois agreed to dismiss the case, but did not award sanctions, which could have led to Harris being handed a massive fine for filing a lawsuit which has little chance of being won, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
