Joe Simon may be done with the Warhol litigation . . . (UPDATED)

. . . but the Warhol litigation isn't done with him.

The Foundation's attorneys issued a statement today which closed as follows:

"The resources Mr. Simon forced the Foundation to expend litigating against these meritless claims would have otherwise gone to funding its charitable mission of promoting the visual arts and preserving the legacy of Andy Warhol. While Mr. Simon may now prefer not to face Defendants’ legitimate counterclaims, the Warhol Foundation is fully committed to pursuing all its legal rights and claims against Mr. Simon to recover the funds it has been forced to waste and give them back to the charitable causes to which they always belonged."

UPDATE: Here's Randy Kennedy's report in the NYT.
