A Rome judge on Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010, declared an end to the six-year-old trial of a former J. Paul Getty Museum antiquities curator Marion True, a case that followed with concern by museums worldwide, because the statute of limitations had expired, defense lawyers said. The case against True involved about 35 artifacts acquired by the museum between 1986 and the late 1990s, including bronze Etruscan pieces, frescoes and painted Greek vessels.
