An Arlington, TX woman has won a fraud lawsuit including royalties estimated between $10 – $20 million regarding the blockbuster book “50 Shades of Grey.”

According to the Star-Telegram, “The jury deliberated for about 10 hours over three days before determining on Thursday that Pedroza was defrauded by Amanda Hayward, her Australian partner in an e-publishing business that originally released what would become a New York Times bestseller.

“State District Judge Susan McCoy will determine how much Pedroza eventually gets after an accounting of the financial records connected to book sales is completed. Records on the royalties have been sealed, but earlier estimates were that her share could be $10 million to $20 million.”
