Jerry Seinfeld Wants Lawsuit Dropped
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has asked the courts to throw out a lawsuit brought against him for making fun of Missy Chase Lepine, the woman suing his wife for plagiarism. Lepine is the author of The Sneaky Chef, which came out six months before Jessica Seinfeld's very similar book called Deceptively Delicious. Lepine claims that since her book was out first and that there are some eerliy similar recipes. Lawyers for the Seinfelds dismissed the plagiarism allegations in court filing, saying, "The idea of sneaking healthy foods into a child's diet is not original to your author."
After Lepine filed the plagiarism lawsuit Jerry Seinfeld went on the Letterman and called Lapine a wacko and compared her to the killers of John Lennon and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. This didn't sit well with Lepine, who then filed the suit accusing him of slander and defamation. If this one gets thrown out, what's next? Lepine suing Jerry and his wife for breathing in her same air? Oy vay!
