Estate of Rechler v. Glenn Horowitz Booksellers, Inc.

(Supreme Ct., Nassau County 2010) (Index No. 4500-2009).  On behalf of the estate of a prominent Long Island developer and rare book collector, we successfully established that the estate’s claims against a well-known Manhattan book dealer for breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, accounting and conversion, had been properly asserted and could proceed to discovery.  The case related to the disposition of the collector’s 137 rare books and manuscripts remaining after a record-breaking Christie’s auction.
