(full article title: EXCLUSIVE: Chelsea Clinton demands court toss the $150,000 lawsuit by writer who claimed she ripped off his idea for her best selling feminist children's book 'She Persisted')
Chelsea Clinton asked a judge on Monday to throw out a $150,000 lawsuit against her children's book after a writer claimed that she ripped off his idea, according to court papers obtained exclusively by DailyMailTV.
While the mother-of-two has been enjoying the 17-week reign of her feminist book 'She Persisted' on the New York Times best sellers list, she has been battling a lawsuit over the copyright of the work since July.
Christopher Janes Kimberley, 56, claims the former first daughter used three of the same women featured in his work and that her publisher ripped off the book's idea after he sent over his proposal through a Facebook message.
The author filed suit in New York court and is seeking $150,000 in damages, plus the profits of the popular book.

Demands? She expects to get what she wants does she not? Pushy brat.
Best selling?!? Seriously? Then again I’m betting every far-left NEA Teacher and librarian in the nation purchased about 50 copies on the taxpayers dime, so maybe it was...
I thought she didn’t care about money? So why not just pay the guy?
I don’t like Chelsea Clinton, but I support her in this. Ideas for books aren’t copyrighted, as far as I know. Did he write a book? Or did he just tell her his idea for a book? Here’s a lesson for him: don’t trust a Clinton.
Book deals are a way for liberals to send millions to those who don’t have it. The reality is that nobody would actually buy this book.
Here are some more Book suggestions.
She pissed her pants.
Actually, if she can’t demonstrate she had the idea first or at the same time, it is theft of intellectual property. If he sent in a prospectus for the book and she copied it, she owes money.
She persisted in lying about Benghazi
She persisted in lying about her server
She persisted in lying about her namesake
Thanks for the laugh.
The Clintons: Hillary’s a murderer, Bill’s a rapist, Chelsea is a thief.
unfortunately the person suing posted on face book the proposal...at that point it is fair game for any writer to steal the idea. if the author can prove that Chelsea had special access to the idea then there might be a law suit. but the moment the person proposed in an open forum like face book they took away the few protections they had on there idea for a book.....that is why before publishing most authors are carful about who has access to there drafts and if they are published a lot of times will have you sign something if you are a beta reader.
“...What is today, Friday? Ah, never mind...”
Chelsea is loaded. She can afford it.
"Kimberley fired off a cease and desist to Clinton and the publisher in April before it hit bookstores.
Nevertheless, she continued to promote the book by going on morning shows like The Today Show and The View.
In other words, she persisted!
