Catching Up

A few quick hits on stories that have been mentioned here before:
  • Nick Flynn, the guy who tripped over his shoelaces and into three 17th Century Qing dynasty vases in January (previously mentioned here and here), has been cleared of any criminal charges. "I can say with my hand on my heart that it was not deliberate," he says.
  • The Brooklyn College MFA students have brought their threatened First Amendment lawsuit against the city and the school.
  • An eavesdropping lawsuit brought by "painter of light" Thomas Kinkade in Michigan state court (against the lawyers for a former Kinkade art gallery that recently obtained an $860,000 arbitration award against him) has been dismissed.
