Billionaire Koch Settles With Acker Auction House Over Fake Wine

Billionaire William Koch said he settled a lawsuit against Acker, Merrall & Condit for selling more than 200 bottles of counterfeit wine at auction.

Koch said the accord includes a “significant payment” from Acker and that the auction house has agreed to change its practices to prevent fake vintage wines from entering the marketplace, according to a statement.

Brad Goldstein, a spokesman for Koch, declined to comment when asked about the amount of the accord.
