The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit recently cited OU Law Professor Steven Gensler’s Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rules and Commentary (2018 edition) in an opinion involving a missing painting.
In G and G Productions LLC v. Rita Rusic, the 9th Circuit quoted Gensler’s treatise, which is updated annually to integrate new rule amendments, the latest caselaw, and emerging trends and issues.
In its opinion, the 9th Circuit found that a lower court correctly mixed Californian and Italian statutes of limitations when it ended claims that a Croatian actress stole Wine of Babylon, a valuable Jean-Michel Basquiat oil painting, from her ex-husband during their divorce, but the panel revived the suit, saying the decision didn’t properly address all its claims.
The opinion was filed Aug. 29. Pages quoting Gensler’s treatise are below. Read the full opinion here.
