The battle for the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind continues. As you all know, last year, Spencer Elden, who is on the album cover (as a baby) sued the band under a civil Child pornography cause-of-action as well as child sex trafficking. Nirvana denied the relevant allegations and filed a motion to dismiss the case. Elden's attorneys did not respond to the motion and the judge granted the motion with leave to amend.
On January 13, Elden's attorneys filed a First Amended Complaint, which keeps the child pornography claim but drops the child sex trafficking one. Nirvana now has the option to file a second motion to dismiss or file an answer.
