Amelia Sargent Article Published in ABA Art & Cultural Heritage Law Newsletter

September 21, 2018

An article written by senior associate Amelia Sargent was published in the Summer 2018 edition of the American Bar Association Section of International Law: Art & Cultural Heritage Law Newsletter.  The article, "Cranachs Remain at Norton Simon under Act of State Doctrine" (p. 4), discusses the recent outcome of the Von Saher v. Norton Simon Museum of Art at Pasadena case.  Over a decade of litigation may have ended with the Ninth Circuit’s July 30, 2018 decision affirming summary judgment in favor of the Norton Simon Art Foundation and Museum, allowing them to retain ownership of the 16th century diptych “Adam and Eve” by Louis Cranach the Elder.
