District Court Denies West's Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit by Two Law Prof Authors

Rudovsky Book I previously blogged the lawsuit by David Rudovsky (Penn) and Leonard N. Sosnov (Widener) against West, claiming that they were falsely identified as the authors of a poorly researched “sham” supplement to their treatise, Pennsylvania Practice: Criminal Procedure Law, Commentary and Forms. The authors stopped working on the treatise when West cut their annual pay from $5,000 to $2,500 each.

In a three-page order issued on June 4, the federal judge has denied West's motion to dismiss the case.  For more coverage, see today's Legal Intelligencer, Law Professors Clear Hurdle in Suit Against West Publishing.  For prior TaxProf Blog coverage, see:
