Oprah sued for alleged plagiarism on show

CHICAGO Plaintiff Charles Harris claimed he sent Winfrey ten copies of his booklet, entitled "How America Elects her Presidents" in hopes of gaining publicity back in 2008.

He said Winfrey later used exact questions from his book during an episode of her program and he is seeking $150,000 for plagiarism.

A spokeswoman for Winfrey could not offer comment, saying they had not yet been served with this lawsuit.
