NEW YORK (AP) - The Columbia University professor who wrote “A Beautiful Mind” has filed suit against the school over almost $1 million that she says she’s owed.
According to a summons filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, Sylvia Nasar says Columbia owes her $923,000 dating back to September 1998 from an endowment grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The summons was filed on Jan. 7.
Columbia declined to comment.
“A Beautiful Mind” tells the life story of economist John Nash. It was made into a movie starring Russell Crowe in 2001.
