Now that Greg Mortenson has agreed to pay $1 million to settle a suit alleging he mishandled his charity’s money, attention it turning to a civil suit accusing him of misrepresentations in his best-selling books, Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools.

The Associated Press reports that a hearing is set for today. The suit asks the judge to order refunds to everyone who purchased the book. The story quotes a First Amendment expert who says, “It’s [Mortenson’s] story. It purports to be his experiences … He has the right to publish anything he wants about himself. The idea that you can be sued because perhaps they don’t like what you wrote, for whatever reason, is absurd.”

    I don’t want a refund. I just want to know which parts of the story are true. It was a fascinating book and a good story. And it encouraged people to find ways to change the world for the better.
