A Lawsuit Between Author Harper Lee and a Museum has Fallen Through.


By Alabama News Network

A lawsuit settlement between "To Kill a Mockingbird" author Harper Lee and a museum in her Alabama hometown has fallen through.

Lee's attorney told the court in February that a settlement had been reached over the museum's use of Lee's name and book title on souvenirs it sells. But He notified the court Monday that the museum won't proceed with the settlement without additional terms not previously agreed to by the parties. A judge however, says he needs know whether a settlement agreement was signed. 

If it was, the judge says Lee must pursue a separate action to enforce it.
