Sotheby’s v. Garcia
Sotheby’s, Inc. v. Garcia, 802 F. Supp. 1058 (S.D.N.Y. 1992); see also Garcia v. Sotheby's, Inc., No. 2:92-cv-00307-JAM (E.D. Va. Sept. 1, 1992).
In a case involving Sandra Garcia, a Virginia resident, who lent $1 million to Imelda Marcos and received artwork as collateral the decisions primarily focused on the issues of venue and interpleading. Garcia asked Sotheby’s to auction six paintings, but the Philippines claimed some of the paintings. Garcia brought a claim against Sotheby’s in Virginia Federal Court for return of the paintings. . . .
