Life

This lawsuit brought on by a screenwriter who claims the Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence comedy Life was plagiarized from his material seems fairly typical at the outset, but went off in a strange direction when the writer, Greg Hudson, who lost the suit, decided to exact his revenge by writing a book called Why I Sued Eddie Murphy. Despite his claims that it would be "the novel of the century," the book failed to make a splash.
