Franz West Archive Sues Gagosian

Eileen Kinsella has the story here.  In a nutshell, there are apparently two entities -- the Archiv Franz West and another private foundation he created near the end of his life -- who are battling it out in the Austrian courts over ownership of certain copyrights.  Gagosian seems to be caught in the middle.  The judge here in New York has denied the Archive's request for a TRO blocking the gallery's current West show in its Madison Avenue space.
