Judge Finds Egon Schiele's Portait of Wally to Be Stolen: Leopold To Go on Trial
"As explained below, I find that abstention is not warranted, there is no genuine dispute that Wally was, and remains, stolen, and the Museum's laches defense and constitutional objections are without merit. The trier of fact must,
