Case Name Saska v. The Metropolitan Museum of Art
Jurisdiction New York County Supreme Court
Summary

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as part of its lease agreement with the city of New York, is required to offer free admission most days of the week.  However, prominent signage and other admissions process components indicate that visitors need to pay a "recommended" fee for admission.  As a result of these misleading efforts by the museum, visitors paid an admission fee that was not required for admission.

Final Approval Date 06/29/2017
Result
  1. Final Approval granted.
