<< The case in point that I refer to is the sad sad case of Sue the T-Rex.  
only did Peter Larson have to pay enormous fines for his collection of what
he believed were legally obtained fossils, but he also had to spend time in
jail as a consequence. >>  

       Myth. No fines nor jail time resulted from the collection of the Field 
Museum Tyrannosaurus. That matter was a question of ownership. And that 
should be Sotheby's, not Christie's. DV
