“Three cups of tea” author Greg Mortenson told the Associated Press that the dismissal of a civil lawsuit accusing him of fabricating book passages to make money for himself and his charity confirms his faith in the U.S. justice system.
On Monday, a U.S. district judge rejected the lawsuit calling the claims against Mortenson overly broad, flimsy and speculative.
