A court-appointed official overseeing the $400 million estate of Huguette Clark, daughter of a Montana copper magnate, wants the return of $37 million worth of gifts - including cash, homes, tuition and a Stadivarius violin - because the recipients allegedly maneuvered and exploited Clark, who died last year at 104. A $6 million Edouard Manet painting given to a hospital and $250,000 to the Corcoran Gallery in Washington are also under investigation. (Associated Press)
