Nirvana responds to 'Nevermind' cover lawsuit: The claim that it's child pornography is not serious

The Nirvana lawyer has responded to a lawsuit by Spencer Elden, the baby from the 'Nevermind' cover, Billboard reports. Elden filed the lawsuit on August 24, accusing Nirvana of violating federal pornography laws and also accusing them of exploitation. The lawyer argues that plaintiff Elden’s claims are “barred by the applicable statute of limitations”, adding in the paper that “Elden’s claim that the photograph on the Nevermind album cover is ‘child pornography’ is, on its face, not serious”. The lawyer also claims that the lawsuit was filed too late.
