Minor Trouble

The New York Times on Halsey Minor's financial troubles, including the following:

"A lawsuit stemming from Mr. Minor’s failure to pay $13 million he owed Sotheby’s led to a $6.6 million judgment in the spring. Last week, the New York federal judge overseeing the case ordered him to surrender by mid-June a long list of his remaining assets. Sotheby’s said it had put Mr. Minor on a 'no-bid' list and asked the judge in a court filing to force him to surrender pets worth more than $50 and any food his family would not be able to consume in the next 60 days."
