Miami Beach-based author and attorney Gerald Posner has been named a defendant in a lawsuit filed on May 3 in New York by 87-year-old Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird. A Bloomberg report says that Lee sued her literary agent Samuel Pinkus, “claiming he took advantage of her age and infirmity to deprive her of royalties from the novel.” According to the complaint, Lee was living in an assisted-living facility after a stroke in 2007 when she signed a document assigning her copyright to Pinkus’ company. Though the copyright was reassigned to Lee last year, Pinkus was, according to the complaint, still receiving royalties from the novel as of 2013. As for Posner’s involvement, he incorporated one of Pinkus’ businesses, says the complaint. We contacted him for comment, and he had none.
