'Da Vinci Code' case nears ending

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A court case in which two historians accuse Dan Brown of copying their work in his novel "The Da Vinci Code" is due to finish on Monday, ending one of the most closely watched copyright claims of recent years. Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh wrote "The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail", a work of historical conjecture published in 1982, which shares some of the same themes as Brown's best-selling religious thriller. They are suing Brown's British publisher Random House, which also happens to be their own. [More]
