What the judge said in the Getty bronze case

February 11, 2010 |  5:30 pm

Victorious Jason Felch reports Thursday on an Italian court ruling that the J. Paul Getty Museum must return the bronze statue known both as "Victorious Youth" and the "Getty bronze." The Getty announced its intent to appeal.

In her 37-page ruling, Italian Judge Lorena Mussoni recounted the long journey of the statue, which experts believed was created in Greece between the 2nd and 4th century BC., perhaps by Lysippos, the personal sculptor for Alexander the Great.

The statue has been a source of contention between the Italian culture ministry and the Getty for years and the subject of a long-running legal battle in Pesaro, Italy
