re: Police find $1B in art taken by Nazis (Posted on 11/4/13 at 2:19 pm to fouldeliverer)
You are right about litigation over this. About 15 years ago there was an ongoing suit by the survivors of a woman whose portrait was painted by Gustav Klimt. The nazis (Austrian branch) had stolen it and it wound up in a museum in Vienna. As I recall the descendants of the owner/subject (Bloch, I believe) won their suit, recovered the painting and it is worth in the eight or nine figure range.
