Kitchen v. Sotheby's, No. SC 2256-07, slip op. (N.Y.C. Small Claims Feb. 19, 2008).
In this small claims court case against Sotheby’s, the plaintiff lost at trial because he failed to satisfy legal evidentiary standards supporting his assertion that his artwork was an authentic pastel by Renoir, and not, as Sotheby’s believed, a print inspired by a Renoir painting. . . .
