LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - In a case of irony, the owners of a giant ark in northern Kentucky have sued their insurance company over damage from heavy rains.
The lawsuit claims heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide at the Ark Encounter which damaged a roadway. Those repairs cost a million dollars.
Court documents say the insurance claim was initially denied, citing faulty craftsmanship.
After an appeal, the company agreed to pay only a small amount.
The lawsuit filed by Ark Encounter seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
The ark itself was not damaged.
