Good news for the campaign to keep CBGBs afloat: a New York judge has dismissed claims for USD300,000 in back rent, and, more importantly, stressed the cultural importance of the venue:

CBGB has proven itself worthy of being recognized as a landmark — a rare achievement for any commercial tenant in the ever diverse and competitive real estate market of New York City [...] It would be unconscionable for this court to allow petitioner to proceed with its intent to evict CBGB ... because it failed to notice that monies were outstanding for approximately four years."
