A judge in California has dismissed a lawsuit against Nirvana made by Spencer Elden, who appeared as a naked baby on the cover of their album Nevermind. Elden sued the band last year, alleging sexual exploitation, and that the artwork constituted child sexual abuse. Now 30, he said the infamous image had caused him "extreme and permanent emotional distress" as well as loss of wages and "enjoyment of life". Nirvana filed to dismiss last month, saying Elden's arguments lacked merit.
