FILE - This Jan. 21, 2015, file photo shows the exterior of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, Calif. A woman who has been fighting for almost a decade over ownership of two German Renaissance masterpieces depicting "Adam" and "Eve" seized by the Nazis during World War II, has lost after a judge ruled in favor of the Southern California museum where they have hung for more than 30 years. U.S. District Court Judge John F. Walter ruled that the Norton Simon Museum is the rightful owner of the two life-size oil-on-panel paintings in a decision that the museum describes as mindful of "the facts and law at the heart of the dispute."
