Monet Painting Said Subject to Nazi Era Forced Sale But Accuses Say No SDNY Jurisdiction

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 22 – Claude Monet's "Le Palais Ducal" was purchased by Decedent Adele Klapper's hsuband in 1980. But the Emdens of Chile claim that the painting, now worth some $30 million, was the subject of a forced sale during the Nazi era.

Klapper's executors have sued three members of the Emden family, essentially to quiet title in the painting - or as they put it, to remove the cloud over their title to it.

On May 22 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Ronnie Abrams held a proceeding, and Inner City Press covered it.

The Emdens have moved to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction. On May 22 their lawyer said New York's long arm statue does not apply. Judge Abrams sensibly asked, If they can't sue here, then where?

There was no answer other than in Chile. Judge Abrams reserved judgment. The case is Bloom et al v. Emden et al., 19-cv-10155 (Abrams).
