"People thought maybe I was rash and should put it down to one of life’s rich experiences. But people defrauding other people, especially in the art market, should not be allowed to get away with it."

Andy Hall won his fraud trial against a former college professor and her son who sold him a series of paintings they claimed were by Leon Golub.  A jury awarded him $465,000 (the amount he had apparently paid for the works).  Graham Bowley has the story here.  Background here.
