The Herzog Collection has been the subject of multiple lawsuits since the end of World War II. Baron Mor Lipot Herzog had put together a collection of paintings, sculptures and decorative arts items during his lifetime. At the time of his death in 1934, it's hard to imagine he had any inkling of the fate of the Collection or the struggles of his heirs to hold on to his legacy.
We are continuing our story about the Herzog Collection. Baron Mor Lipot Herzog, a Jewish Hungarian art collector, had amassed thousands of paintings, sculptures, and other artworks throughout his life. By 1940, both the Baron and his wife had died, and the collection was divided among his heirs.
Three great-grandchildren of wealthy Hungarian art collector Baron Mor Lipot Herzog won a small victory earlier this month in their case against the government of Hungary. A federal court has denied all but a few claims of the country's motion to dismiss. The heirs are fighting for the return of the Baron's art collection that was seized during World War II.

About four years before he died, he gave the wife power of attorney. After Bob's death in 2010, the couple laid claim to a hefty portion of his $10 million estate.
