NEW YORK (AP) -- A federal judge has ruled that a Swedish author cannot publish in the United States a book he wrote that was advertised as a sequel to J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher In The Rye."
Judge Deborah Batts issued her ruling Wednesday after hearing arguments in a lawsuit brought by the 90-year-old Salinger against the publishers of "60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye."
The book was scheduled to be published in the United States this summer. The Manhattan judge heard arguments last month.
