This year marks 30 years since Ferdinand Marcos died in the islands while in exile from the Philipines. The deposed leader left behind millions in secret accounts across the world. But this month there was a significant development in a case over the sale of the Marcos family’s art and antiques from  their New York apartment.

Honolulu Attorney Sherry Broder has fought long and hard to recover money for victims of human rights abuses under the Marcos regime.

It includes the sale of a world famous impressionist painting by the French artist Monet. And will mark the second largest distribution to her clients-- $13 million 750,000. Broder explains why this settlement is so significant.
