Judge’s decision Early April

The  case against Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown has ended in London and the presiding judge says he hopes to give a ruling by early April.

The three-week hearing instigated by two historians who claimed their work had been plagiarised featured debate about the Merovingian monarchy, the Knights Templar and Jesus’ bloodline, and revelations about the media-shy author and his wife Blythe.

The Da Vinci Code, which is one of the most successful novels of all time with sales of over 40 million copies, uses some of the same ideas as The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, a 1982 work of historical conjecture by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh.
