More Fresno Fallout

The Fresno Bee reports: "The son and daughter-in-law of famed nature photographer Ansel Adams have filed a civil complaint in Fresno County Superior Court to prevent six of Adams' prints from being auctioned off by the Fresno Metropolitan Museum."

The background: "The Met closed in January and already has auctioned off tools, office equipment and other items to raise money to pay creditors. An art auction is planned for a later date. . . . Museum officials have said proceeds from the two auctions will go toward paying the Met's debts, estimated at about $4 million."
