U.S. Marshalls Auction Off Seized Art

Yesterday, the government opened its art vault to the highest bidder. Online auctioneers Gaston & Sheehan, on behalf of the U.S. Marshal Service, completed an auction of 245 works of art that have been forfeited to the government in the last few years after being seized during investigations of several convicted white-collar criminals.

  • How does a person who has rights to some of these art works go about filing a claim to stop the sale of the art works and/or their exit from the U.S.?
