Settlement reached over alleged Ansel Adams images

FRESNO, Calif.

The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust sued Rick Norigian last year to stop him from selling prints of dozens of negatives he bought at a garage sale.

Norigian hired a team of experts which declared the negatives were Adams' early work that was believed to have been destroyed by a fire in 1937.

The Adams family disputed that.

A settlement reached this week allows Norigian to sell merchandise connected to the slides, but he's not allowed to use Ansel Adams' name.
