Hobby Lobby buys a tablet from Christie's auction house, and everyone carefully checks a box marked "we asked if it was stolen and the seller said no" and then the tablet turns out to be stolen, twice now.

Everything bought from Christie's is probably stolen, and that's never going to negatively impact Christie's.
