Suggested Dismissal Affirmed

The First Department has affirmed the dismissal of (most of) the lawsuit challenging the Met's admission policies.  The decision is here.  Good summary from Nicholas O'Donnell here.  Brian Boucher tweets "thank goodness, this stupid suit against the [museum] is finally done with" ... but that's not quite right.  As I explained after the lower court decision, "the part of the lawsuit alleging that the museum misleads people into thinking the admission fee is mandatory ... survives."
