Thomas Kline Reflects on Historic "Portrait of Wally" Settlement

wally 2In "Portrait of Notoriety," an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, Lawyers'' Committee Board Member Thomas Kline reflects on the historic settlement of "United States v. Portrait of Wally," on the eve of its trial in U.S. federal court. According to Kline, the settlement is a "cautionary tale" demonstrating that "Artwork purchased in haste (without significant diligence) is returned at leisure (after many millions are spent in litigation and settlement)."
