The hunt for a court rul­ing:

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - - GO! -

Tom Clancy’s widow wants a court to rule that the au­thor’s es­tate is the ex­clu­sive owner of the rights to his fa­mous char­ac­ter Jack Ryan. Me­dia out­lets re­port that Alexan­dra Clancy’s law­suit says that the au­thor’s es­tate should be the sole ben­e­fi­ciary of any post­hu­mous books fea­tur­ing the char­ac­ter who was first in­tro­duced in “The Hunt for Red Oc­to­ber.” Alexan­dra Clancy is su­ing the per­sonal rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Clancy’s es­tate, J.W. Thomp­son Webb, for al­low­ing other en­ti­ties to profit from post­hu­mous book rev­enues. Clancy’s first wife, Wanda King, is a par­tial owner of those other en­ti­ties. The law­suit says: “Tom Clancy made Jack Ryan; and in a sense, Jack Ryan made Tom Clancy.” The law­suit was filed in the Cir­cuit Court in Baltimore. Tom Clancy died in 2013.
