The plaintiff is  misguided.

His  father took the photo. His  father gave the photo willingly and freely to the band 30 years ago. The plaintiff  has  been milking this  accidental  15 minutes for years  recreating  the  photo  as he grew older.  It is not child pornography . It is not sexual abuse.

This money grab has nothing to do with a model release or lack thereof. Every kid who has ever bee been snapped running naked through a sprinkler could sue.

The lawyer should have told him to sue his father. There might be enough jurors with daddy issues to to pull that off.
