Newsroom - November 2015

Anne Horn Baroody recently assisted the Advocacy Committee of the Lawyers’ Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation (LCCHP) in filing an Amicus Brief in support of a Petition for Certiorari in the United States Supreme Court in Schoeps v. Free State of Bavaria, Federal Republic of Germany, Docket No. 15-447. Plaintiffs in Schoeps seek to recover a painting by Pablo Picasso (Madame Soler), claiming it was the subject of a forced transfer in Berlin in 1934 under the Nazi regime. LCCHP’s amicus brief concerns the nature and substance of contacts with the United States that should be deemed sufficient to justify imposition of jurisdiction in U.S. courts under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, 28 U.S.C. § 1605(a)(2), a frequent subject of litigation in claims of Nazi-era art looting. The painting now rests in Bavarian custody in a Munich museum. See Schoeps v. Bayern, 27 F. Supp. 3d 540, 541 (S.D.N.Y. 2014). The LCCHP is a nonprofit organization that supports and promotes the protection and preservation of cultural heritage resources both in the United States and internationally through education and advocacy.
