Broken Flowers Infringement Suit

The Globe has the story of an NYU professor and screenwriter who claims the producers of the Bill Murray film "Broken Flowers" took most of their ideas from his screenplay. As the story suggests, many of these claims go nowhere, most often because it's very difficult to prove the allegedly offending party had access to the plaintiff's work. We've had our own run-ins with similar scenarios. Here, however, it sounds like there might be a pretty good paper trail in that regard. Good one to keep an eye on.
