Oh, tartar sauce!

The NYT's Kate Taylor reports that, "according to a lawsuit filed last week in Superior Court in Los Angeles, a former lead artist on the cartoon 'SpongeBob Squarepants' hired accomplices to attack his art dealer and take over her gallery in order to gain control of the sale of his work."  The artist's lawyer says the suit is "completely ridiculous" and that he "intends to sue [the dealer] for malicious prosecution and refer this matter to the appropriate district attorney’s office."
