Berkshire Museum Art Auction Halted for Now


A state appeals court in Massachusetts has granted an injunction to stop, for now, any auction of artworks at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield. 

That auction was scheduled to take place Monday. 

The plan is to sell 40 works of art, including two Norman Rockwell originals, in hopes of raising enough money to finance renovations and stay open. 

State Attorney General's office claimed the museum violated its "duty of care" to the public. 

The injunction is in effect until December 11th, but can be extended by the Attorney General's Office.
