Grisham Book Lawsuit Dismissed
02/02/2010

(AP) - A federal appeals court has upheld a lower

court decision dismissing a libel and defamation lawsuit filed

against authors and attorneys John Grisham and Barry Scheck.

In an opinion released Monday, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of

Appeals found that plaintiffs William Peterson, Gary Rogers and

Melvin Hett failed to state a claim upon which relief can be

granted.

Peterson, Rogers and Hett sued Grisham, Scheck and others over

books the authors penned about the wrongful convictions of Dennis

Fritz and Ron Williamson in the 1982 death of Debra Carter.

The books were critical of Peterson, the ex-Pontotoc County

district attorney, who along with former OSBI investigator Rogers

and state criminologist Hett helped win the convictions of Fritz

and Williamson.

DNA tests showed Fritz and Williamson didn't kill Carter.
