A luxury boutique in the middle of an art exhibition was supposed to be controversial -- but not a legal matter.
The temporary retail space allowed in October by the Museum of Contemporary Art has become the center of litigation, though. A class action suit brought Monday by an L.A. collector alleges that Louis Vuitton failed to take the law into account when selling limited-edition prints by Japanese Pop artist Takashi Murakami at his show at the museum's Geffen Contemporary.
