Blackbird suing Heidi's over fire [moved from Minneapolis-St. Paul board]
Blackbird is seeking $383,000 in lawsuit. Didn't they have insurance? Heidi's is a beloved restaurant by foodies. Anyone think this is bad P.R. for Blackbird?
according to commentary on the heavy table, this is exactly correct, the insurance co is suing in blackbird's name for what was paid out as a result of the original fire.
the new heidi's has only been open for a few months, but apparently the ins co. thinks there's a good chance of being able to collect a good chunk of change from them, regardless of whether it puts stuart and heidi and the restarurant out of biz. i wonder if the lawsuit would not have occurred, had the restaurant not also reopened.
