Hungary asks US court to reject looted art lawsuit
The Hungarian government says it has asked a US court to dismiss a lawsuit by the heirs of a prominent Jewish collector who are seeking the return of art worth over $100 million seized during the Holocaust.


The Ministry of National Development said Tuesday that the 2010 suit by the heirs of Baron Mor Lipot Herzog in Washington should be dismissed, in part because compensation for the 44 artworks was covered by a 1973 claims agreement between Hungary and the United States. (AP)
