Salvage Company Presses Second Suit Over Treasure

The salvage company that has been locked in a lengthy court battle with the Republic of Colombia over billions of dollars worth of sunken treasure has filed another suit in Washington federal district court.

The suit is the latest legal maneuvering by the Bellevue, Wash. company to assert its ownership interest in the undersea bounty. This month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld the dismissal of an earlier lawsuit the company filed. The appeals court cited a three-year statute of limitations
