Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Plagiarism Suit

Elisabeth Hasselbeck's best-selling book, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide is under attack. The Associated Press reports that The View co-host is being sued for plagiarism by Susan Hassett, who filed a federal lawsuit in Massachusetts on Monday alleging that Hasselbeck's book lifted "word for word" from Hassett's self-published Living with Celiac Disease. Hassett further alleged that Hasselbeck's book "slavishly reproduces" passages from her book and is inaccurate when it comes to celiac disease, a digestive disorder that involves intolerance to gluten. According to Hassett, she sent Hasselbeck a copy of her book last year after learning Hasselbeck suffers from celiac disease. Hasselbeck's representatives had no comment on the suit.
