An update for you this morning on the ongoing trial between WB/JKR vs.RDR Books. The Detroit Free Press is reporting an appeal is expected to be filed this week in this matter. The paper reports:

Roger Rapoport, a Muskegon publisher, and Steve Vander Ark, a Grand Rapids area librarian and author, expect their attorneys this week to file a notice of appeal preserving the men’s right to continue the legal battle for their Harry Potter book.

U.S. District Judge Robert P. Patterson Jr. ruled Sept. 8 that the book violated Rowling’s copyright and blocked its publication.

The paper also reports that reps for Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling could not be reached.
