NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The owner of the flood-damaged Opry Mills Mall is suing its insurance company, claiming the company has refused to honor its flood insurance policy.
According to the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Davidson County Chancery Court, the policy insuring Opry Mills provides $200 million in flood insurance coverage.
The mall was severely damaged in the May flood and losses to the property are estimated to exceed $200 million.
Having already spent $50 million, the mall is waiting for the remaining insurance claims to continue restoration efforts.
In a release sent to News 2 late Tuesday, Opry Mill said the longer the insurance company fails to pay, the longer it will be before the mall reopens.
The neighboring Opryland Resort and Convention Center and Grand Ole Opry House were also flooded in early May.
Both are slated to open later this year.
