Court TV anchor Diane Dimond is writing a book about the singer's legal struggles, to be published this fall by Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, Judith Curr, executive vice president and publisher, announced Tuesday.

Financial terms weren't disclosed. The book is not yet titled.

Jackson was acquitted last week of child molestation charges following a 4-month trial, but his supporters have long alleged that Dimond's reporting favored the prosecution, a charge she has denied.

She even obtained a temporary restraining order against one Jackson fan, Bobby Joe Hickman, 18, of Knoxville, Tenn. Dimond alleged Hickman was inciting people to attack her and she felt so threatened that Court TV hired three guards to protect her.
