Judge tosses orphanage suit against Mitch Albom

 PONTIAC (AP) — A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that operators of a Haitian orphanage filed against Mitch Albom and one of his charities, claiming the best-selling author broke terms of an agreement about running the orphanage after the devastating January 2010 earthquake.


The suit was filed in September in Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac by the Caring and Sharing Mission charity and its founder, the Rev. John Hearn.


Hearn says that the Detroit Free Press columnist and his A Hole in the Roof Foundation didn’t follow an operating agreement they entered into with the Port-au-Prince mission after the quake.


On Monday, Judge Leo Bowman ruled that Hearn and his charity have no basis for their claim.


Albom has written several books, including the 1997 best-seller “Tuesdays with Morrie.”
