The Fano Athlete: Decision On Hold

The Fano Athlete
It appears that the legal process to decide on Italian claims to the Fano Athlete has been put on hold (LA Times). Yet one of the issues to emerge (via Jason Felch) back in January 2010 was the due diligence process undertaken (or not) by the J. Paul Getty Museum.

It would be interesting for the Getty to release the documents to show how the curatorial team at the museum responded to concerns voiced by Dietrich von Bothmer and Thomas Hoving.

For some of the earlier issues relating to the statue see here.
