Four years after the death of renowned photographer and art collector Lance Dane, the Bombay high court rejected a petition challenging validity of an order issued by the city collector enabling a public charitable trust to take over the treasure trove of antiques, paintings and precious coins left behind by the British army officer.

A division bench of Justice SC Dharmadhikari and Justice BP Colabawalla refused to entertain petition filed by Sanjay Gejge, who claimed to be an adopted son of Dane, primarily on the ground that it involved disputed facts.
