Federal Judge Fernando M. Olguín dismissed Spencer Alden’s trial on January 4 after a missed deadline, but allowed him to file an amended version.

The new complaint includes an announcement from the album’s graphic designer that Alden’s lawyers argue that the band and Geffen Records intentionally sought to display baby Alden’s gender and exploit the image for commercial gain.

The lawsuit, first filed in federal court in California in August, stated that Alden, now 30, had suffered “lifetime damages” because the band and others had slapped a dollar bill on the fish. The latter had benefited from his omnipresent image of swimming naked underwater. hook

Named defendants include surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and the estate of Krist Novoselic and Kurt Cobain.

A motion to be dismissed, filed in December by Nirvana’s lawyers, argues that the lawsuit was filed long before the 10-year statute of limitations was one of the statutes used as a cause of action, and that a And citing legislation was not enacted until 2003 and was not retroactive.

The motion says the lawsuit is “on its face, not serious,” and Alden’s conduct reflects that.

“Alden has spent three decades profiting from his figure as the self-anointed ‘Nirvana Baby’,” the document said.

The Associated Press does not usually name people who say they have been victims of sexual abuse, but when they have repeatedly appeared in public, as Alden has done.
