In the News

The national news reported today about how the government of Peru is planning on suing Yale University for the return of their priceless artifacts.

The University says that even though a contract says that they were going to "hold on to and study" the artifacts that in fact they are now the owners of the priceless artifacts.

Isn't that stealing? How could the University hold onto possessions they clearly sought only to borrow?

I think that the Peruvian Government is entitled to all the artifacts - and the Yale University granted a letter thanking them for being good stewards and nothing more. If this goes to court they may lose.
