University of Oklahoma building legal case to keep painting stolen by Nazis

The University of Oklahoma is building a legal argument to keep a painting by Camille Pissarro that was stolen by Nazis in 1941.

Leone Meyer, a 75-year-old Holocaust survivor living in Paris, has maintained that she is entitled to the painting, “Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep,” and has sued the university for ownership.

The lawsuit previously was thrown out because it was filed in the wrong state.
