No Less Than Three

Artnet News notes that Josh Baer might have to start a new newsletter devoted just to legal news:

"His Aug. 18 issue, for instance, featured items on no less than three legal actions: a dispute involving Gateway Computer founder Norman Waitt over some paintings he acquired from Gerald Peters Gallery; a lawsuit by Moscow dealer Gary Tatintsian against Luhring Augustine Gallery over the sale of a dozen George Condo paintings for $4.5 million; and a $5-million suit filed against Christie’s by Georges Marciano and Beverly Hills Antiques accusing the auction house of negligence in the transport of a collection of 400 artworks."
