UK date set for Da Vinci Code plagiarism trial

LONDON (Reuters) - Two historians are suing the publishers of Dan Brown's best-selling religious thriller "The Da Vinci Code" in a case which lawyers said on Thursday was due to start early next year.

Lawyers on both sides of the case met on Thursday to thrash out technical details, and said a trial date had been set for February 27. [More]
