Arguments began Wednesday at the U.S. Supreme Court in a case of Nazi-looted art. Maria Altmann is suing for the right to bring a lawsuit in a U.S. court against the Austrian government to seek the return of looted paintings. She says the paintings were stolen from her family during the Nazi era. An attorney for Austria said Altmann’s aunt intended for the government-owned Austrian Gallery to have the paintings and that any conflict should be settled in Austrian courts.
