Massachusetts Airport Sues For Obama Visit

A Marlborough, Mass., airport filed suit against the Federal government on Tuesday alleging that a 2010 visit by President Barack Obama caused $676,048 in damages to the tarmac.

The President landed at the Marlborough Airport on April 1, 2010 to visit an emergency bunker in the State, according to the Boston Business Journal.

The airport’s complaint alleges that the while the President’s helicopter, Marine One, did not cause any damage, the Secret Service negligently damaged the runway with vehicles brought in for Presidential security.

“[G]round vehicles brought onto the airport by or under the Secret Service, such as, but not limited to, a ‘foam truck,’ which weighs approximately 44,000 pounds, (were) negligently driven onto the airport and proximately caused property damage in an amount of $676,048.13,” the complaint says.

The airport has reportedly asked the Federal government for compensation to recoup the damages, but has been denied.

“They stated we haven’t shown or proven any negligence,” Evans J. Carter, the lawyer for the airport operator, told the Boston Business Journal.
