PHILADELPHIA, PA. (AP).- A judge has upheld his controversial decision allowing the Barnes Foundation to move its multibillion-dollar art collection to Philadelphia.

Montgomery County Orphans Court Judge Stanley Ott ruled Thursday that there is no new evidence to consider.

Petitioners had asked Ott to re-examine his 2004 decision allowing the Barnes to leave its suburban home.

They contend the 2009 documentary "The Art of the Steal" includes new evidence that he didn't have when he originally ruled. But Ott disagrees.

The Barnes is moving because leaders say the institution is not financially viable at its original home in Lower Merion, about five miles from Philadelphia.

The collection includes dozens of Renoirs, Matisses and Picassos. Its new building in Philadelphia is slated to open May 19.
