These days, everyone gets fifteen minutes of fame, but not everyone scores a date with the U.S. Supreme Court. Will Andy Warhol? On Monday, the justices declined to take up several dozen cases discussed at a conference late last week, but teased the art world by deferring a decision on Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts v. Lynn Goldsmith. That would be the very hot legal dispute over whether Warhol is a copyright infringer. (Update 3/28: The Supreme Court will review this case.)
