Supreme Court Won’t Hear Lawsuit Over Jewish-Owned Art Seized During WWII
Heirs of a renowned Jewish art collector won’t be able use U.S courts to sue Hungary’s government for the return of paintings seized during World War II that are worth millions.
The Supreme Court on Monday said it wouldn’t take the case. That means an appeals court ruling that Hungary is immune from being sued in U.S. courts over the paintings stands.
The family unsuccessfully tried suing in Hungary before suing in the U.S. in 2010.
