A foundation that until recently authenticated Andy Warhol works can proceed with a lawsuit against its insurer seeking coverage for millions in legal fees it incurred defending a now-settled lawsuit accusing the foundation of rigging the authentication process for its own benefit, a Manhattan judge has ruled.
