Plagiarism Charges Against Elisabeth Hasselbeck Tossed

Nov 17, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A federal judge in Massachusetts dismissed a lawsuit that had accused “The View” panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck of plagiarism, the Associated Press reports.

A self-published Cape Cod author, Susan Hassett, accused Hasselbeck of taking material from a book she wrote, to use in Hasselbeck’s best-selling "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide." Hasselbeck denied it.

The case was dismissed last week after Hassett’s attorney declined to pursue it. Attorney Richard Cunha told the AP that he still believes some plagiarism occurred but he isn’t sure it is serious enough for his client to recover damages.

  4. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  5. I mean, I could see all this fuss over the guy if he’d led Jersey to the Finals
