Orkin v. Taylor (9th Cir. - May 18, 2007)

Elizabeth Taylor gets to keep Van Gogh's painting Vue de l’Asile et de la Chapelle de Saint-Rémy. Because the
Holocaust Victims Redress Act, according to Judge Thomas, doesn't create a private right of action (which seems pretty right) and the plaintiffs' state law claims are time-barred (ditto).

Art law. Not something you typically read about on a lazy Friday.
