The U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in a case testing whether U.S. citizens may sue in American courts to reclaim property seized from their families by the Nazis during World War II. The case involves some of the most important Austrian artwork of the 20th century, including several paintings by Gustav Klimt. NPR's Nina Totenberg reports.
