Fight Over Paintings Looted by Nazis May Get Trial Thanks to the 9th Cir
Bloomberg BNA's United States Law Week reports on a California federal court of appeals decision which will allow Herrick client Marei von Saher, sole heir of prominent Jewish art dealer Jacques Goudstikker, to proceed with her Nazi-looted art claim against the Norton Simon Museum of Pasadena. Bloomberg delves into the Court's ruling that Ms. von Saher's claim can proceed, because a judicial ruling on its merits would not be an intrusion on the federal government's power to conduct foreign affairs.
