Montana author with Minnesota ties sued over 'Three Cups of Tea'

Published 04/18/2012, Associated Press

Regardless of whether claims are true that author Greg Mortenson of Bozeman, Mont., fabricated portions of "Three Cups of Tea," neither he nor his publisher can be held liable because the First Amendment protects exaggerations or lies in memoirs, his publisher's attorney said Wednesday. Mortenson, who was born in St. Cloud, Minn., to Lutheran missionaries and attended Concordia College in Moorhead on a football scholarship from 1977-1979, has raised millions for his charity work in Afghanistan and nearby countries.
