Clearasil and the Getty, Part Deux

There's an update about the Getty Antiques Troubles in today's LAT, and some commentaries on Tyler Green's. I'm too tired by the Praxiteles post to comment, so I'll lazily link to MAN.
Kudos to Green for correctly pointing out Marion True real unforgivable sin, the loan she received from a collector. Before this was announced I thought she was paying for the institution longstanding collecting practice (which, BTW, has always been an open secret in the Greek and Roman art history world).
I don't know if True's trial involves this loan too, but that IMHO is the real shocker. I vaguely remember the Fleischmann loan was to repay the first one she got through a lawyer, but I cannot check sources so there you are.
