Woman Sues For Unpaid Civil War Loan
Seventy-seven-year-old Joan Kennedy Biddle is pitching her outrageous suit to her lawyer, with the attitude that she has nothing to lose and everything to gain. Biddle found a Civil War-dated IOU from the City of Tampa to her great-grandfather, and decided that the city needs to honor its word and pay back the then $300 loan — which today would be worth about $23 million.
