Doss Inc. v. Christies Inc.



in 1991, the plaintiff purchased a painting by French artist Marie Laurencin from Christies. In 2006, plaintiff sought to sell it at auction, but learned that it may have been stolen from the original owner, one Paul Rosenberg, a well-known art dealer in Paris, during the Nazi occupation in the 1940's. The Rosenberg family has demanded its return, making the painting now unsaleable. Plaintiffs have sued Christes seeking to recover the sums paid for it, or its present value.
