The I.M. Chait gallery had previously purchased and sold an illegally smuggled dinosaur skeleton from convicted paleontologist Eric Prokopi, whom Bharara called a "one-man black market in prehistoric fossils."

The gallery has not been accused of wrongdoing. A representative did not return a request for comment on Monday.
