US: Judge halts Berkshire museum's sale of Rockwell art

A judge has halted the controversial sale of two paintings by the American artist, Norman Rockwell.

At the heart of the matter is whether a museum has the right to sell off works that were donated to it for safekeeping for generations to come.

The museum says it needs the expected $50 million windfall to pay for renovations.
