NEWS OF THE WEEK: Nirvana win lawsuit over Nevermind cover art

In August 2021, Spencer Elden filed a lawsuit in which he accused the band of violating federal pornography laws and exploiting him due to an image of him swimming naked as an infant being featured in the cover artwork. Though the lawsuit was dismissed in January, Elden refiled later that month, amending the original complaint by removing charges of child sex trafficking but still arguing the photograph was child pornography. Yet, on Friday, Judge Fernando Olguin sided with Nirvana, noting that Elden had waited too long to allege he had been exploited.
