Boone Suit

From Artnet News: "In a lawsuit filed in New York state supreme court on Feb. 9, 2009, [Mary Boone Gallery] seeks to compel Ohio collector Mary Kidder, a trustee of the Columbus Museum of Art, to complete a purchase of a painting by Will Cotton for $32,000."

The obvious problem of the statute of frauds (which the gallery is certainly familiar with) is mentioned.
