LOS ANGELES — François Pinault has prevailed in the long-running legal battle between Artemis SA and California’s insurance commissioner, at least for now.
After an eight-day federal jury trial in the U.S. District Court, Central District of California here, jurors on Oct. 29 rejected the claim in which the California insurance commissioner was seeking $4.33 billion in profits and interest stemming from the sale of a California life insurance company and junk-bond portfolio to French investors in 1991.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
