‘Scandal’ Creator Shonda Rhimes Sued by Writer

Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes is being sued by a writer over allegations that she borrowed ideas for short-lived series Off The Map.

Debra Feldman claims in her lawsuit that Rhimes lifted plots from her manuscript The Red Tattoo, which has similar themes to Off the Map, about U.S. doctors working in a South American village.

A representative for Rhimes has refused to comment on the case, telling TMZ.com, “It is our policy not to comment on frivolous claims.”

Rhimes was an executive producer on the series, which was cancelled after one season in 2011.
