The actual court decisions are on-line, containing the whole story of how this mess happened, which as usual doesn't make anybody look good, but there is no decision saying that Fisk can't sell the collection. Indeed, the O'Keeffe Foundation's position has been dismissed. What has happened is that circumstances have changed and the whole thing is now up in the air.

New York Times, March 8, 2010.
A few days ago, the Attorney General of Tennessee, who has a kind of public trustee role in this, effectively told the Fisk not to act on the court decision that dismissed the O'Keeffe Foundation claim. It is possible that someone is mixing up the AG with the court, or even that the AG or the Foundation followed up the AG's statement with getting an injunction yesterday, but that would a temporary order while the rest of the process gets sorted out. If a court actually reversed the previous order in Fisk's favour, not only has it not been widely reported, but nobody even reported that such a hearing was about to take place. Odd.
Merg, have a look at your URL link and the by-line on the story, which say that it was published not today but two years ago. The decision referred to in the story has been overruled.
