This headline and lead-in story are incorrect. The judge dismissed/ruled against the proposal of the Attorney General of Tennessee, NOT Fisk! Fisk did not want the art moved to the Frist Museum; rather, the AG had proposed this in an attempt seen by some as "stealing" the art from Fisk without compensation. Fisk has won this particular battle, and has the opportunity to propose a new version of their original solution to the court, which should help the university to receive some sort of compensation in order to stay afloat. This is a highly charged and sensitive issue in Nashville, and deserves accuracy in its reporting, particularly as it is one of the first hits on an internet search.
