(AP) – The company that owns the Grand Ole Opry is suing the Army Corps of Engineers over the flooding that damaged the Opry in 2010.

Gaylord Entertainment is suing the agency for the $250 million in damage to the Opry, its hotel and convention center. Attorney Robert Patterson told a Nashville court yesterday that corps officials failed to lower the water level of the Cumberland River behind the Old Hickory Dam.

He says when more than a foot of rain fell over two days, the corps released water from the dam that flooded the Opry.

Department of Justice attorneys are asking the judge to dismiss the lawsuit, saying federal law prevents the government from being held liable for flood damage.
