The BBC is reporting that the judge has ruled in favour of Dan Brown and Random House in the London copyright court case (ruling against Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, two of the three authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail). Brown has been quoted as saying:
I’m pleased with today’s outcome, not only from a personal standpoint, but also as a novelist. Books are an important part of our culture, and this is a good day both for those who write and for those who enjoy reading.
It still looks like his next novel, The Solomon Key, is some way off with Brown saying “After devoting so much time and energy to this case, I’m eager to get back to writing my new novel.” A summary of the judge’s ruling is available here, which also has a link to the full ruling in PDF format.
