American Airlines, Museum Of Natural History, In Fight Over Dead Fish

In a real-life fish tale a big airline is going head to head with a big museum. American Airlines this week filed court papers in an attempt to limit its liability after it was sued by the American Museum of Natural History in New York over the loss of dead fish.

At issue are two barrels of African fish, checked as luggage -- not cargo -- by a researcher's wife, reports the New York Post.
