'Da Vinci' Case Yields Hefty Bill





Two authors who unsuccessfully sued the British publisher of "The Da Vinci Code" have been ordered to pay 85 percent of the publisher's legal bill, estimated at just over $2.4 million, the BBC reported. Although the first installment, $651,000, was due on Friday, the authors, Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, applied for more time, and Justice Peter Smith, who heard the case in High Court in London, adjourned the matter to this week. They also face a bill from their own lawyers.
