David James Duncan Suing The River Why Filmmakers


In all the excitement surrounding the film adaptation of The River Why, ever wonder why the guy who wrote the book was strangely absent from all the publicity?

Duncan v. Cohen, 2008 WL 2891065 (N.D. Cal.)

Duncan sued defendants, including the Sierra Club, based on Thomas Cohen and Kristi Cohen’s attempts to make a film of Duncan’s book The River Why.  He alleged copyright infringement and various state-law claims.

I really hope Duncan gets what he's looking for in this--The River Why is in many ways autobiographical according to him, and his "heart-work." He's a gentle, good person and he must be really upset to sue like this.
