JK Rowling accepts charity donation for identity revelation

Author JK Rowling accepted an apology and a charitable donation on Wednesday from a law firm which revealed she wrote a crime novel under a pseudonym.
The ‘Harry Potter’ author was exposed by a newspaper on 14 July as the author of ‘The Cuckoo's Calling,’ a thriller ostensibly written by former soldier and first-time novelist Robert Galbraith.
The law firm Russells acknowledged that one of its partners had let the information slip to his wife's best friend, who tweeted it to a Sunday Times columnist. Rowling sued the lawyer and on Wednesday the court said the author had been left ‘angry and distressed that her confidences had been betrayed.’
