Court of Appeals Pans J.D. Salinger Follow-Up

salingerbook.jpgYesterday author Fredrik Colting took his defense of his J.D. Salinger-inspired book to the U.S. Court of Appeals, hoping the court will reverse an order enjoining publication of “60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye.”

According to Litigation Daily, Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein & Selz partner Edward Rosenthal defended Colting and SCB Distributors Inc. in front of a three-judge panel, calling the book “highly transformative with enormous amounts of commentary and criticism.” After a hearing last month, federal judge Deborah Batts ruled that the Swedish author could not publish this book that re-examines the story of “The Catcher in the Rye.”

Here’s more from the article: “Rip-off or not, the book did not fare well under the critical eye of Judge Guido Calabresi at Thursday’s hearing. He called it “a rather dismal piece of work” … Judge Calabresi said the case raised First Amendment issues and that the district court may need more evidence to decide.”
