"[T]he consignment agreement gave Sotheby's the right to withdraw the print from auction 'if in its sole judgment' there were doubt as to attribution" (UPDATED)

"Given Noland's assertion of her right under VARA to prevent use of her name in connection with plaintiff's [work], ... Sotheby's was within its rights to withdraw the [work] from [auction]."

Sotheby's has prevailed on summary judgment in the lawsuit brought against it by Marc Jancou.  No link available at the moment.  Jancou's claims against artist Cady Noland were not at issue on the motion, and so remain intact.

UPDATE:  More from ARTINFO's Rachel Corbett here.
