In an ongoing battle between a publisher and a romance novelist, the Massachusetts district court partially granted summary judgment in the publisher’s favor, stating that the writer’s reasoning for selecting the wrong forum “runs contrary to common sense.”

De Vita sent Grishman a proposed publishing agreement for the acquisition of Clark’s titles.
