A wind versus water damage lawsuit related to Hurricane Katrina is pitting the Bay St. Louis-Waveland School District against its insurance company.
Cathedral Capital Limited's federal court lawsuit seeks a declaratory judgement as to what is owed, or in this case what is not owed under the policy.
District attorney Ronnie Artiques said the district contends there was more damage caused by wind then Cathedral is willing to agree to.
School Superintendent Kim Stasny said the school district's policy with Cathedral is an excess policy, which only pays after the district's main policy has exceeded policy limits.
Stasny says the main policy paid about $5 million, but the excess policy is worth about $25 million.
The attorney representing the insurance company, Scott Ellzey, says both parties are continuing to work toward a resolution.
