Koch v Acker case on again


Billionaire Bill Koch (pictured) has been trying to sue New York-based auctioneers Acker, Merrall & Condit for some years now over what he alleged was a case of selling fake wine. Initially this was thrown out of court but this decision has just been overturned, opening the way for open public warfare between the hugely well-funded, and litigious, wine collector and the controversial auctioneer who is implicated in the Rudy/Ponsot debacle.
