Ferguson Facing Legal Battle Over Book
British royal SARAH FERGUSON has filed a lawsuit in a bid to stop a controversial book from hitting U.K. shelves.
The Duchess of York went undercover to film 700 disabled children at a Turkish orphanage for a TV documentary earlier this year (09).
Her expose sparked controversy, with officials from Turkey demanding Ferguson be extradited for breaching laws by filming minors at the home.
Journalist Chris Rogers interviewed the royal for Under Cover, a book on the subject of orphanages, and Ferguson even agreed to write the preface for the tome, based on her experience.
However, following the scandal surrounding her documentary, she has filed legal documents to try and stop the book from being published, according to Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper.
But officials from the book's publishing house, Authentic Media, are adamant they will fight Ferguson's legal bid.
A spokesperson for the company says, "We are 100 per cent confident that the book will come out. If necessary, we will fight through whatever court it takes. Conversations are going on between Chris Rogers and Buckingham Palace."
