From Murder To Museums: Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler and The Hunt For Nazi Looted Art In America-Current Legal Controversies Over Nazi Art Looting

Program Number: 2857 Presenter: Raymond Dowd

Museums today acknowledge that significant amounts of Nazi-looted art may have found its way into collections supported by U.S. taxpayers. The United States and its Allies fought World War II, promising, in victory, to undo the horrors of Nazism. At Nuremberg, Nazis were tried based on international law, which, in turn was based on the Lieber Code, Abraham Lincoln’s Executive Order 100 of April 23, 1863 which forbid taking the cultural property of the enemy. In 1998, in the wake of District Attorney Robert Morgenthau’s spectacular seizure of two paintings by the artist Egon Schiele at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, forty-four nations gathered in Washington D.C. at the Washington Conference on Nazi Confiscated Artwork to agree that in cases of artworks, the true owners should be determined, regardless of statutes of limitations and that, where possible, artworks should be returned to their true owners.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** The government has brought charges for illegal insider trading primarily under the federal securities laws, chiefly Section 10 of the Securities Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5. In a small number of cases, the government has taken a different approach -- charging insider trading in violation of not only Rule 10b-5 but also Section 1348 of Title 18. That was the case in the the high-profile SDNY prosecution in United States v. Blaszczak et al., which involved trading on the basis of confidential information about prospective changes to Medicare reimbursement rates. In that case, the defendants were acquitted on the Rule 10b-5 charges but convicted on the Section 1348 charges, even though the charges related to the same securities trading. In this program, Jonathan Sack – a former chief of the criminal division in

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** The #MeToo era is in full swing, and it shows no signs of abating anytime soon.

In addition, significant new and pending changes to New York State and New York City law—including the “Stop Sexual Harassment in NYC Act,” which takes effect on October 9, 2018—will impose substantial burdens on hospitality employers, making it all the more important that they have the most effective practices in place to prevent and respond to sex harassment in the workplace
