Harper Lee filed a lawsuit Friday in federal court in Manhattan to re-secure the copyright for To Kill a Mockingbird, the Associated Press reported. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages from Samuel Pinkus, the son-in-law of Lee's former literary agent, and companies he allegedly created, claims that he "failed to properly protect the copyright of the book after his father-in-law, Eugene Winick--who had represented Lee as a literary agent since the book was published in 1960 through the firm McIntosh and Otis--became ill a decade ago."-Shelf Awareness
