No Moore appeals, say Lords

An action reported in the 'Forthcoming Case' section of The Lawyer on 30 January has now settled. Last ditch moves in the long-running battle over ownership of millions of pounds worth of work by sculptor Henry Moore have ended in defeat for the artist's daughter. The Law Lords have ruled that his daughter, Mary, who has been attempting to gain control of works of art produced by him from 1977 until his death, cannot take her action to a full hearing in the House of Lords. The Lords upheld the Appeal Court's rejection of her claim in March.
