Barnes Update

At the end of a lengthy post speculating about the Barnes's possible change in status from an educational institution to a museum, Lee Rosenbaum notes the following:

"Incidentally, the date by which the Barnes must file its response in Montgomery County Orphans' Court to petitions opposing its planned move was postponed to this Friday. I'm assuming that its lawyers will argue that the case has already been definitively decided and that the petitioners should not be granted legal standing to request reconsideration by Judge Stanley Ott. It might still be up to the judge, however, to decide whether changed circumstances warrant his taking another look. Time and the lawyers will tell."
