Paintings At Centre Of Lawsuit

Two famous Canadians are going to court claiming they bought fake Norval Morrisseau paintings from a Toronto art dealer.   Lawyer Jonathan Sommer represents musicians Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies and John McDermott and  who plans to prove the paintings were not done by the famous Northwestern Ontario First Nations artist.   The lawyer for the art dealer Brian Shiller says the claims are false and the paintings are authentic.  None of the allegations have been proven in court.
