Intrepid Lawsuit

The AP reports that the Intrepid Museum is facing a lawsuit claiming that it lost several World War II-era photographs that had been loaned to it. The plaintiff says the photos were worth about $175,000.

For its part, the museum is playing the Guilt Card: its president is quoted as saying, "We are surprised and disappointed to hear of the filing of this lawsuit have referred this matter to our insurance representatives." He added that the museum had "limited resources" and "this unfortunate action detracts from our carrying out [our] critically important national mission."
