A claim for attorney fees against the artist who created Soho’s well-known sculpture “The Wall” will go forward following a Manhattan judge’s partial denial of the artist’s motion to dismiss.

Supreme Court Justice Emily Jane Goodman dismissed a claim for more than $250,000 in connection with the federal lawsuit Richard A. Altman initiated on behalf of sculptor Forrest W. Myers, but held that Myers may be responsible for the work Altman performed towards an appeal before Myers substituted counsel and withdrew the appeal.
