Alfons Mucha's Slav epic belongs to Prague, the Municipal Court ruled. The verdict is final. The painter's grandson, John Mucha, had sued Prague City Hall over the ownership of cycle of 20 large-scale canvases. The grandson's claim was based on Prague not creating an exhibition hall, which he claimed was a condition for ownership. Judge Iveta Veselá said the gift agreement was concluded between the city and American industrialist Charles Richard Crane, who commissioned the work.
