Gary Engle sent a letter to Interior Secretary David Bernhardt on April 30 demanding $70 million and indemnification from environmental contamination at Caneel Bay Resort. (The Daily News, June 13, 2019, page 10)

The thrust of the letter is that Engle and his company, CBI Acquisitions LLC, an affiliate of another company, EHI Acquisitions LLC, want to get out of St. John and they want the federal government to pay them to do so.
