City Sued Over Book

City library director Vicki Elkins never imagined that the hardcover book about Zephyrhills history she helped compile would end up controversial. It was supposed to be a gift to the community, preserving its history in 285 pages that took nearly a decade to compile. Then in April, more than two years after Zephyrhills From A to Z's release in December 2008, a resident sued the city not about its content, but about its price tag of $29.95, plus tax.

crazy story, wow

I think that the publisher had the right to charge what they thought the market would bear. If the guy couldn't afford to buy a copy, he should have waited til it was available at the library, not sued them over the price. The city had to pay over $4,000 of lawyers fees...ridiculous!
