The Pointless Jimmy Carter Lawsuit

Bookmark and Share

Jesse Segal at Boston.com:

“Loathing” would be too understated a word to describe how some in the conservative wing of the pro-Israel movement feel about Jimmy Carter. Ever since his 2006 book “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid,” he’s been the the target of fulminating outrage. So it’s not entirely surprising that Carter is the subject of a ridiculous class-action lawsuit just filed in Manhattan federal court on behalf of everyone who bought the book.

Carter’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, responds:

This lawsuit is frivolous, without merit, and is a transparent attempt by the plaintiffs, despite their contentions, to punish the author, a Nobel Peace Prize winner and world-renowned statesman, and his publisher, for writing and publishing a book with which the plaintiffs simply disagree. It is a chilling attack on free speech that we intend to defend vigorously.
