The estate of Dr. Jack Kevorkian has filed a lawsuit in suburban Detroit against a Massachusetts museum that is refusing to return 17 paintings and other art.
The Armenian Library and Museum of America in Watertown, Mass., claims Kevorkian donated the art in 1999. But the estate of the assisted-suicide advocate says he merely loaned it to the museum for an exhibit and subsequent storage.
The museum filed its own lawsuit earlier this month to prevent the estate from getting the art. Estate attorney Mayer Morganroth says an auction next week in New York was supposed to include the art. A message seeking comment was left with the museum's attorney.
Kevorkian died in June at age 83. He claimed to have assisted in more than 130 deaths.
