(Undated) -- "Harry Potter" author JK Rowling is suing Britain's "Daily Mail" for libel. Rowling is taking issue with a website article that suggested the author wasn't entirely truthful about backlash she says she experienced from churchgoers as a single mother. Rowling says the "Daily Mail" story misrepresented the comments she made in an article that was published ten days earlier on the website. She denies accusing her fellow churchgoers of "stigmatizing" or "cruelly taunting" her as the "Daily Mail" follow up had suggested. The paper has removed the story from its website. Rowling is reportedly seeking unspecified damages from the paper's publisher.
