Noontime Talk - Laura Brill
Well-known appellate lawyer Laura Brill will be at Loyola Law School to give a presentation on the long-running case of Cassirer v. Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection Foundation. This case, originally filed in the Central District of California in 2005, was brought by heirs of the Jewish woman who was forced to “sell” her valuable painting, "Rue Saint-Honore, Apres-Midi, Effet de Pluie," by leading French impressionist Camille Pissarro to a Nazi-appointed art dealer in 1939. The painting ultimately ended up in the collection of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, and was displayed in the museum bearing his name in Madrid, Spain. The case has been on appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals no less than three times, most recently in July 2017, when the Court reversed summary judgment and remanded for further proceedings. Come join us to hear about this fascinating and important case that has attracted national and international attention, as well as high-profile law firms on both sides.
