A rumor originated form a website 2 days ago saying Stephenie Meyer(she of the Divine Goddesses:)) was sued by an old college roommate for plagiarism. The whole thing was too funny and smelled so fake that we didn't even post it but someone just sent me this link and the bogus story is on UK Yahoo! News! Does anybody do their jobs anymore? Seriously!
NO, Stephenie Meyer(the HOLY) is not sued for plagiarism and NO New Moon Production is not halted. Official statement from Summit via Twilight Lexicon:
There is absolutely no truth to the rumor about any interruption to the filming of NEW MOON. The production of the film has not been stalled or interrupted in any way and filming continues as planned. Additionally, after consulting with Stephenie Meyer and her publishers, speculation about any claims of plagiarism are also completely not true. This is a hoax, pure and simple. The internet for all of its assets can still be an easy breeding ground for such hoaxes and detractors, and we hope that people will not be duped so easily, and use appropriate diligence before perpetuating everything or anyone that claims to have information about the TWILIGHT franchise.
