SHARE NU settles lawsuit with former worker regarding book on Leopold and Loeb

Northwestern University agreed to settle and dismiss a July 2014 lawsuit against a former library employee.

Nina Barrett wrote a book about the notorious 1924 murder of a 14-year-old boy by two University of Chicago law students and was sued by Northwestern in federal court after both parties disputed who owned the copyright in a yet-to-be-completed book.

The book examines in depth materials owned and maintained by the library relating to the prosecution of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb for the 1924 murder of Bobby Franks in Chicago, according to a statement from Northwestern University.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, Barrett worked on the book as a Fellow at the University’s Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities.

As a result of the settlement, the University and Barrett intend to jointly pursue publication of the book and to share ownership of its copyright, the school said.
