CHRISTIAN POST: Carey Scott, a Colorado author and life coach, has accused international evangelist Christine Caine and her publishers of copying portions of a book she published in 2015 to include in two best-selling books Caine published later.
In a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Michigan in May — a copy of which was acquired by The Christian Post Tuesday — Scott names Caine, HarperCollins Publishers LLC, HarperCollins Christian Publishing, Inc., The Zondervan Corporation and Inc. d/b/a Zondervan Publishing as defendants.
Scott’s attorney, Joseph R. Delehanty, who was not immediately available for comment, describes her in the lawsuit as a motivational author and speaker whose message focuses on Christian women who battle insecurity and feelings of worthlessness and shame. She developed a number of Bible study methods, ministry aids, and general media and print resources for her audience.
In May 2015, Scott shared some of her Christian self-help wisdom in a book called Untangled: Let God Loosen the Knots of Insecurity in your Life, through publishing company Revell, which is a subsidiary of the Baker Publishing Group.
“… This is an action under federal copyright law for injunctive relief and monetary damages arising out of, inter alia, Defendants’ willful infringement and unauthorized use of Plaintiff’s copyrighted work,” he added.
