Spain Nets $1 Million in Fees in Sunken Treasure Case

     (CN) - A marine explorer who improperly claimed a $600-million treasure from a sunken Spanish warship must pay $1 million in fees and costs to Spain, a federal judge ruled.


     U.S. District Judge Steven Merryday in Tampa, Fla. entered the judgment in the 6-year long litigation Wednesday, finding that the company had acted in bad faith and had prolonged the dispute unnecessarily.
