U.S. Court Revives Jewish Family's Attempt to Regain Ownership of Masterpiece Painting Stolen by Nazis

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press via

A federal appeals court on Monday resurrected a Jewish family's long legal battle to regain ownership of a $20 million masterpiece painting seized in Nazi Germany during World War II.

In doing so, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals also reinstated a California law allowing lawsuits over art ownership disputes dating back as far as 100 years. The decision reversed a lower court ruling that invalidated the law saying it infringed on the US government's exclusive authority over foreign affairs.
