Harper Lee, author of the iconic trial novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” wants to reinstate a federal lawsuit she had earlier agreed to settle, the ABA Journal reports. Lee's suit against the Monroe County Heritage Museum in her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, alleged that the institution was profiting from using her name and the book's title without authorization on souvenirs it sells. A settlement of the 2013 legal action was announced earlier this year, but it isn't known whether a settlement agreement was actually signed.
