Lawyers representing two sets of clients suing the Berkshire Museum over a proposed art sale say they will continue the legal fight. This comes even as the museum may be close to settling the case with the state attorney general's office.
If they are to successfully make the jump to light speed, Star Wars movies require a precisely calibrated fuel mixture: one-third epic space battles, one-third narrow escapes and duly buckled swashes, one-third hooded beardy dudes standing around looking pained while solemnly intoning the cheesiest hokum about Darkness and Light as if it's Hamlet's Yorick speech (which in a way, it is).
Berkshire Museum lawyers are asking the state appeals court to quickly decide whether it can auction off parts of its art collection -- including two paintings by Norman Rockwell. The court last week issued an injunction halting the sale.
