HELENA, Mont. -- Two Montana residents have filed a lawsuit against "Three Cups of Tea" author Greg Mortenson and his Central Asia Institute for alleged fabrications in his book.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court in Missoula is the latest fallout after published reports Mortenson lied about events in his best-selling book and may have benefited from his charity.

Mortenson is at his Bozeman home awaiting heart surgery. His spokesman did not return a call for comment Friday.

The lawsuit by Michele Reinhart, of Missoula, and Jean Price, of Great Falls, claims Mortenson and CAI committed fraud by inducing them to donate and buy his book.

They are asking a federal judge to certify their complaint as a class-action lawsuit that could potentially be joined by millions of people.
