Court lets Taylor keep Van Gogh

The US Supreme Court has upheld the decision to let Elizabeth Taylor keep a Van Gogh painting that may have been seized by the Nazis in World War II.
An appeal was made by descendants of a Jewish woman who said she was forced to sell it before fleeing Germany in 1939.

Judges refused to review a US appeals court ruling that dismissed the case because it was deemed too late to bring further action.

The actress bought the painting, worth $10-15m (£5-8m), in 1963.
