Del. Judge Rules In Elvis Memorabilia Dispute

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware judge has ruled against a man who claims he was treated unfairly by a former business partner in a legal battle over an odd collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia.
    
Chancellor Leo Strine Jr. on Thursday dismissed a complaint filed by Robert Gallagher, ruling that it was barred by the passage of time.
    
The case dates to 2007, when Strine granted California businessman Richard Long ownership of a collection of items once owned by Presley's personal physician, Dr. George Nichopolous.
    
Long sold the collection in 2009 to recoup some of the $1.2 million he had invested in a failed venture with Gallagher and another partner, Betty Franklin.
    
Gallagher complained that Long failed to try to maximize the sale value of the memorabilia at auction, from which Gallagher received nothing.
