Czech Court Rejects Jewish Family's Restitution Claim

The Constitutional Court in the Czech Republic, the country’s highest court, has confirmed the rejection of a restitution claim by the descendants of a Jewish man who owned a snap button factory that was taken over by the Nazis and then nationalized, The Associated Press (AP) reported on Friday.

The court confirmed its 2010 verdict, which overturned a 2009 Supreme Court ruling and all previous rulings of lower courts that found in favor of three relatives of Zikmund Waldes, who owned the Koh-i-noor factory in Prague when the Nazis seized it in 1939 during their occupation of then-Czechoslovakia.
