WASHINGTON, DC /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Cafesjian Family Foundation (CFF) welcomed the decision by the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia that the National Bank of Washington building and other contiguous properties revert to the Foundation under the terms of a 2003 grant agreement. The January 26 ruling opens the way for development of the Armenian Genocide Museum and Memorial in the heart of the nation’s capital, a project the federal court called a “laudable goal.”
“I am gratified by this decision,” said President and CEO Gerard L. Cafesjian, adding that “the more significant vision for the Museum and Memorial can proceed without attempts to lessen the impact of the museum.”
