Lawsuit Concerning Forged Leon Golub Works Partially Survives Summary Judgment

In an important ruling issued last week, a federal judge allowed fraud claims asserted by art collector Andrew Hall to proceed against a former art-history professor and her son, Lorettan and Nicholas Gascard, alleging that they sold him a number of forged Leon Golub works.  The court’s decision is instructive for collectors who may have been duped into purchasing forged artworks, only to discover many years later that they were fakes.

Appellate Court Affirms Grossman LLP’s Victory For Peter Beard

Last summer, Grossman LLP successfully represented renowned artist and photographer Peter Beard and his studio in a lawsuit over three of his original artworks.  The Chase defendants appealed to a higher court—the state’s Supreme Court Appellate Division, First Department—which held oral arguments on the appeal in January.  And this week, the appellate court again handed an important victory to Mr. Beard.


Grossman LLP Obtains Total Victory in Lawsuit Brought by Madonna Regarding Tupac Shakur Breakup Letter

"Some of the items were provided for the sale by Darlene Lutz, Madonna’s former friend and art consultant, who was also named as a defendant in the suit. Monday’s ruling also said that a 2004 settlement agreement between Ms. Lutz and Madonna prevented the singer from suing for the items.  Reached by email, Ms. Lutz’s lawyer, Judd B. Grossman, said the decision was a 'total victory.' He added, 'The court was clear that Madonna may no longer interfere with the sale of Ms. Lutz’s property.'"
