Complaint sought to be amended in Fairey v AP, false statements made by plaintiff

In Fairey v. Associated Press, the fair use case involving a painting of Pres. Obama from a photograph, the plaintiff has sought to amend his complaint, on the ground that he had made incorrect statements about the photograph on which his painting had been based.

Additionally, his motion states that he had initially attempted to cover up his mistake, rather than bring the mistake to the attention of his attorneys.
