Judge refers claim of naked ‘Nirvana baby’ on album cover to trash

A judge has definitively rejected the claim of Spencer Elden, the man who appeared naked as a baby on the cover of Nirvana’s album ‘Nevermind’ more than 30 years ago. That reports the American music magazine Rolling Stone. Judge Fernando Olguin said Elden waited too long to file his complaint. He also forbade Elden to bring the case again.

Elden wanted $150,000 in damages from the band because he was depicted naked as a baby on the world-famous cover of the 1991 album ‘Nevermind’. According to Elden, there was child pornography because he was too young to give permission at the time. His naked appearance on the album cover is said to have caused him “extreme emotional distress”.

The judge did not rule on the merits of the case, but referred them to the trash on the basis that Elden waited too long. After ten years, the statute of limitations expired.

A Nirvana lawyer told Reuters that he is “satisfied” that this “without ground has been settled quickly”.
