Appeal Sought In Nazi Loot Case

Madrid’s Thyssen-Bornemisza museum is appealing a US court’s ruling in “a lawsuit seeking the return of a disputed Impressionist masterpiece allegedly stolen by the Nazis from a Jewish family during World War II.” The Spanish government, which administers the museum, had asked the court to dismiss a lawsuit by a San Diego family which claims it is the proper owner of the Pissarro street scene valued at $20 million.
