Webinar

Yael Weitz, associate in Herrick's Art Law Group, participated in a panel entitled "The Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act in Art and Antiquities Matters."

The program addressed the intersection between the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) and art matters, including two cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court this year. The panel examined the history of sovereign immunity, the passage of the FSIA in 1976, its subsequent application in a number of historic art law cases, and its recent invocation in antiquities disputes.
