According to Livesteez, Tyler Perry beat the case:

A Texas woman who accused actor-screenwriter Tyler Perry of stealing material from her play for his blockbuster movie “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” has lost her federal lawsuit against the entertainer.
The Marshall News Messenger reports jurors found Tuesday that Donna West did not present evidence that supported her claim of copyright infringement. West argued that Perry lifted material from a script she wrote titled “Fantasy of a Black Woman.” She asked that her family be awarded all the profits made from Perry’s 2005 film. The movie earned some $50 million. Perry insisted that his screenplay is an original work.

Tyler must be giddier than a mutha right about now. Truth be told, this comes as no shock. Money always comes out on top. SMH.
