Son of Socialite Sues Dallas Art Museum

Posted on March 16th, 2011 No Comments

Arnold Leon Schroeder, Jr., the son of a socialite and writer, has recently filed a lawsuit against The Dallas Museum of Art, claiming that curators of the museum swindled him out of his inheritance of over one thousand works of art.

Schroeder’s father had collected at least 1,400 famous pieces of artwork during his lifetime, which were then passed to Schroeder’s mother when his father died in 1981. According to the lawsuit, curators of the Dallas museum took advantage of Schroeder’s mother’s grief and convinced her to give all of the artwork to the museum in the event of her passing. The woman died in 2007, at which point, all of the artwork and woman’s assets went to the museum.

Schroeder is suing on claims that his mother was tricked into giving away her assets and that he is the rightful heir to the valuable collection of art. He is suing the museum for conspiracy, fraud, and the interference with rights of inheriting assets.
