Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain have won their legal battle to deny the release of Kurt Cobain’s death photos. Journalist Richard Lee is a firm believer that Cobain was murdered, and he attempted to get access to the pictures under the Washington State’s Public Records Act.
Lee sued the city of Seattle including its police department in 2014. He’s been labeled by the courts as ‘a conspiracy theorist who believes that Mr. Cobain was murdered’. He also hosts a public access TV show called ‘Now See It Person to Person: Kurt Cobain Was Murdered‘.
The case was initially thrown out in 2015 after Superior Court Judge, Theresa Doyle asserted that Lee had improperly served the lawsuit to the city and failed to give officials adequate time to address his public records request. Judge Doyle also added that releasing the images would be ‘highly offensive to a reasonable person’.
This news comes just after Frances Bean Cobain lost her legal battle to retain her father’s guitar. The acoustic guitar made famous from Kurt Cobain’s MTV Unplugged appearance has been judged the property of Frances Bean Cobain’s ex-husband in a recent divorce settlement.
