Court Rejects Lawsuit Against Author Greg Mortenson

“Three cups of tea” author Greg Mortenson told the Associated Press that the dismissal of a civil lawsuit accusing him of fabricating book passages to make money for himself and his charity confirms his faith in the U.S. justice system.

On Monday, a U.S. district judge rejected the lawsuit calling the claims against Mortenson overly broad, flimsy and speculative.

Last month, Montana’s attorney general. announced $1 million dollar agreement to settle claims that Mortenson mismanaged the Central Asia Institute and misspent its funds. The agreement removes Mortenson from any financial oversight and overhauls the charity’s structure.
