Andy Warhol's "Red Shoes"
A couple says a Scottsdale art gallery that was storing their Andy Warhol work sold it without their permission.

Amy Koler and Stephen Meyer sued American Fine Art Editions, Phillip Koss, Jacqueline Carroll, and Jeff Dippold in Maricopa County Court, alleging conversion and breach of fiduciary duty. The couple had moved out of state and kept Warhol's "Red Shoes" in storage at the gallery.

 Koler and Meyer say they bought the Warhol from American Fine Art Editions in 2005 for $65,000. They were offered that same price by the gallery as reimbursement for the sale, but maintain that the Warhol is worth much more now.
