Can You Plagiarize & Then Sue For Plagiarism? 

Yahoo! News - Scriptwriter sues Sony for plagiarising J. Lo film
A New York-based scriptwriter is seeking five million dollars in damages from Sony Pictures for allegedly stealing the idea behind the 2002 movie "Enough" starring Jennifer Lopez, her lawyer said.


A subsequent viewing of "Enough" -- in which Lopez plays a waitress in an abusive marriage, who flees from, and eventually kills, her husband -- convinced Turner that the film was an adaptation of her script.
Isn't that the plot of Sleeping With the Enemy?

I'm just saying.
