A New York judge has given the go-signal for the Art Capital Group to sue Getty Images for interference regarding ACGâ€™s loan last year of $24 million to photographer Annie Leibovitz.
ACG alleged that Gettyâ€™s $1.1 million deal with Leibovitz last spring violated two binding legal contracts ACG made with the photographer.
According to ACG, Getty signed a confidentiality agreement last February to discuss the acquisition of Leibovitzâ€™s collection. Getty then allegedly used the informationâ€”in violation of the confidentiality agreementâ€”to make the side deal to represent Leibovitz.
