An Update On The 'Three Cups Of Tea' Lawsuit

Play associated audio
Millions of people bought Greg Mortenson's book Three Cups of Tea about his work building schools for girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Many gave money to his charity. Then, earlier this year, a 60 Minutes investigation charged that Mortenson fabricated key parts of his story — and used funds from the charity for himself. Now a group of readers in Mortenson's home state of Montana is suing him for fraud. Melissa Block speaks with court reporter Gwen Florio of the Missoulian about the current state of the Three Cups of Tea lawsuit.
