I just saw that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has won her lawsuit that was filed against her by Susan Hassett. The U.S. District Court in Massachusetts could find no evidence that Hasselbeck had plagiarized Living With Celiac Disease by author Susan Hassett when writing her book The G-Free Diet.

I predicted this outcome some time ago, and am happy that Elisabeth won. Some people believe that any publicity for celiac disease is good publicity, but in this case I disagree.

Hopefully Elisabeth still has the desire to continue publicizing her book and celiac disease to the public, as there is really nobody else that I can think of who can command the kind of media attention as she can.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).
