Company Wants $79.7 Million For Columbia Loss
Spacehab Tuesday said it's filed a
formal claim against NASA seeking restitution for its losses in the
2003 Columbia shuttle disaster. Spacehab says its losses total more
than $79.7 million.
In January 2004 the Company filed suit against NASA, seeking
indemnification under the Company's ReALMS contract for $87.7
million. That, Spacehab claimed, was the value of the Company's
Research Double Module (RDM) and related equipment destroyed in the
STS-107 tragedy. NASA responded to this contract claim on October
5, 2004, saying its liability is limited under the ReALMS contract
to $8.0 million.
Under the Federal Tort Claims Act, SPACEHAB accuses NASA of
negligence in the shuttle disaster. Under federal tort claim
procedures, NASA has statutory deadlines for responding to such
claims. If the company's claim is denied, the Company would have
the right to pursue the claim in the Federal district court.
