Tyrannosaurus bataar Brings $1,052,500 At Heritage Auctions New York Event

That is to be determined. Heritage Auctions claims that the Mongolian government's Texas law firm has no authority in the New York judicial system. See Heritage Auctions statement about the sale at

So as I wrote before, the issue is far from resolved. The petition against the sale is still open at
