A writer who faced social-media backlash for calling out a transit worker eating on a train sued her publisher Friday after it cancelled her book deal over the controversy. Lawyers for Natasha Tynes filed suit against publisher Rare Bird Lit., Inc. in Los Angeles County Superior Court, saying the company breached its contract and defamed the Maryland author. She's seeking $13.4 million in damages.
