BBQ Litigation Avoided

CK - Washington.   Security cost the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern some $15 million when President Bush recently visited Chancellor Merkel on July 13, 2006.

State President Harald Ringstorff threatened the federal government with litigation to collect the expense for the most expensive barbecue the world has seen. Netzeitung.de reports that the federal government now averted litigation over the responsibility for the cost by suggesting that the state submit an itemized bill to justify a reimbursement.
