Court Dismisses Da Vinci Lawsuit Against Christie’s

Yesterday, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit accusing Christie’s auction house of failing to recognize a $100 million drawing by Leonardo da Vinci and selling it for $21,850. Christie’s incorrectly identified it as the work of an unknown German artist, according to the lawsuit filed by its former owner Jeanne Marchig who asked Christie’s to handle its sale. U.S. District Court Judge John Koetl tossed the case out on Tuesday, ruling that too much time had passed since the sale for Marchig’s claims to be legitimate.
