WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a man who sued Yale University in an effort to claim a $200 million Vincent van Gogh painting.

The court turned away Pierre Konowaloff’s appeal without comment. Konowaloff said van Gogh’s “The Night Cafe” was stolen from his family during the Russian Revolution.

Yale has had the painting since 1961.

Lower courts also had ruled for the university.

The case is Konowaloff v. Yale, 15-921.
