Legal dispute between "Ludington librarian" and PublishAmerica headed to civil jury trial

According to legal documents issued by the Circuit Court for Frederick County, Maryland, a contract dispute between Sally Stern-Hamilton, the notorious “Ludington librarian” who was fired from her job as an assistant at the public library in Ludington, Michigan, in the summer of 2008 after writing The Library Diaries, an unflattering book about the quirky and disreputable patrons with whom she interacted, and PublishAmerica, the infamous vanity press located in Maryland, is scheduled to be decided by a civil jury trial in late October 2010. Presumably, the dispute revolves around Stern-Hamilton’s book, which was written under a pseudonym and published by PublishAmerica in June 2008.
