The courts dismissed a charge of plagiarism against J.K. Rowling by the estate of Adrian Jacobs after the estate failed to post a £1.5 million security bond. Jacobs’s executor, Paul Allen, first charged Rowling with plagiarizing Jacobs’s book The Adventures of Willy the Wizard in 2004. The court had ordered the estate to post a bond to cover 65% of the costs faced by Rowling and her publisher, Bloomsbury, in case the estate did not prevail. The estate’s inability to post the bond eventually ended the case.
