You may have the right to have me bring in my artwork under a court order (I do not know, IANAL, and I'm still trying to understand the discovery process).
You do NOT have the right to have me also bring in just about everything else I possess in my house.
I don't know that this is accurate. Even in 1950, it's my impression that prosecutors, judges, and everyone else had the common sense to realize that I might not keep my "stolen" portraits with my legitimate art collection, especially if I felt that "the fuzz" (g-men, etc.) were closing in. I would think that the warrant would be issued to search my house (looking for artwork, of course), and perhaps that or a separate one would be issued for my place of employment, any rented storage I might have, perhaps even my parents' basement; and that such inclusion of "likely" hiding spots would be fairly routine. That's what I get from watching lawyers on TV, anyway.
