Defendants in history

From the fine arts section of yesterday’s New York Times, this announcement about a current gallery show:

Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, [At] David Tunick, 19 East 66th Street, Manhattan, through Aug. 17

He may have lived in the 17th century, but the Genoese artist Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (1609-64) sounds very much like a modern-day enfant terrible. He had a reputation for violence and extravagance, and was a target of at least 12 lawsuits.

Castiglione comes nowhere near the defendants in my own lawsuit. The Skush-O’Brien clan, individually and in unattractive family groupings, has been sued at least 50 times over the past several decades.
