Judge Slams Person Suing 'Twilight' Creator

12/3/2009 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A sinister plot against "Twilight" creator Stephenie Meyer has been exposed in court -- and it's all over an allegation that Meyer stole the idea for her vampire empire from someone else!

Stephanie Meyer
A judge slammed competing vampire author Jordan Scott, claiming her accusation that Meyer ripped off a book called "The Nocturne" was "deceptive" -- not to mention completely unfounded.

As TMZ previously reported (Spoiler alert!) Scott alleged the wedding, consummation and birth scenes in Meyer's book "Breaking Dawn" were suspiciously similar to scenes from "Nocturne" -- but the judge ripped Scott, saying she had "twice manipulated aspects of the subject works in order to create the appearance of similarity."

The case was officially dismissed.

barry Gordy is genius    

JORDAN SCOTT has ZERO credibility now. Forgery, alteration and deception? Sounds like a criminal who happens to write books.

Well, at least she has nice lips. She should holla at Fresno Slim so she can get that REAL money.

Sounds like the other author didn't have the money to hire great lawyers like the Twilight author - too bad, she probably did get ripped off.......

Hey, while they're at it, maybe the folks at "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" should sue too. Anyone else?

There hasn't been nothing new since the 2000's started. Only money making idiots. This woman should be sued for killing vampires with her teenage crap Twilight. Her books and the damn movies suck!
