A Spanish judge recently reopened a plagiarism case against the late Nobel Prize-winning novelist Camilo José Cela, the Independent reported. Carmen Formoso, author of the novel Carmen, Carmela, Carmiña, originally filed charges in 2001 alleging that Cela had lifted passages from her book for his best-selling novel La Cruz de San Andres. Cela, who denied the accusations, died in January 2002 before the case was settled. He was ultimately found not guilty.
