Does Courtney Love Need Her Head Examined?

"Incapacity" Provision

Courtney Love v. Nirvana

Claiming that Courtney Love is “incapacitated,” the surviving members of Nirvana want a Seattle judge to order Kurt Cobain’s widow to undergo a psychiatric examination in connection with the court fight raging over control of the grunge band’s legacy. Citing a unique “incapacity” provision in a Nirvana partnership agreement, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic filed this April 11 motion in King County Superior Court seeking to have Love examined by a shrink. Cobain’s widow last year filed suit against Grohl and Novoselic to terminate Nirvana L.L.C., the 1997 partnership formed by the trio to administer future group business. In opposing the Grohl/Novoselic bid, Love’s attorney has denied his client is currently addled. Tomorrow (4/19), the parties are scheduled to argue the motion before Judge Robert Alsdorf. (9 pages)
