For many, Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mocking Bird” operates as the foundation for our understanding of morality in an unjust world. But recently, the classic book has been embroiled in another contentious issue surrounding the justice system. On Feb. 19, Lee and the Monroe County Heritage museum struck a deal, settling a previously filed lawsuit.
In Oct. 2013, Lee filed a complaint against a Monroeville, Ala. based museum for allegedly selling items that capitalized on images associated with the book to make money. Monroeville is also Lee’s hometown.
