Did Freedom Tower Design Rip Off A Student?

The court rules that a student claiming that the 2003 design for the Freedom Tower copied his 1999 school project can proceed with his lawsuit.

"A federal judge ruled yesterday that there were enough similarities between David M. Childs's 2003 design for the Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center site and a 1999 student architectural project that a lawsuit against Mr. Childs for copyright violation could proceed."
