Owners of biblical replica of Noah's ark sue over ... rain damage

The owner of the life-size replica of Noah’s Ark in Northern Kentucky has sued its insurers for refusing to cover, of all things … rain damage.

 

Ark Encounter, which unveiled the 510-foot-long model in 2016, says that heavy rains in 2017 and 2018 caused a landslide on its access road, and its five insurance carriers refused to cover nearly $1 million in damages.

 

In a 77-page lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, Ark Encounter asks for compensatory and punitive damages.

 

The ark itself was not damaged and the road has been rebuilt, according to the suit.

im about 10 min away from this place and its been ran very shady . they ask for tax breaks from state then transfer 18 mil  property to there non profit for $10 . the state pulls there tax breaks  and it's get transferred back so they can get the tax breaks again

 

 

 

Those that built the ark also created a convoluted ownership structure – a nonprofit owns a for-profit that operates a nonprofit.
