Marchig v. Christie's Inc.

Plaintiffs' amended complaint


Judge John Koeltl denied defendant Christie's motion to dismiss the complaint, and gave plaintiffs permission to file an amended complaint. The case is about Christie's failure to attribute the drawing correctly, and auctioning it for a fraction of its value. There is now expert and scientific evidence that the drawing is by Leonardo da Vinci, and the plaintiffs, its former owners, seek damages for Christie's breach of its fiduciary obligations and negligence.
