Leave everything to me!
I read the autobiography of Pattie Boyd (George Harrison's ex-wife and also Eric Clapton's ex-wife). She and Harrison were married at the time of this lawsuit. She said that George was anal about having a radio in the house playing because of this issue and after the lawsuit was even more so. He did not want to take the chance he would be influenced by another song.The musical plagiarism lawsuit that always seemed correct to me - although I don't want to believe it because I am about a million times as much a fan of George Harrison as The Chiffons - but yeah, My Sweet Lord sure sounds real close to the melody of He's So Fine which came out ~7 years before.
A vid with both if anyone is interested. It switches at about the 1:50 mark
