Key West, Florida (CNN) Key West has the most expensive air conditioning in the world, but it has never had a major problem with it.
Now, a hotel and spa have filed for bankruptcy protection because of the air conditioning, and Key West is at the center of an investigation into whether the spa shut down after it had a significant problem.
The spa has been in the news before for its handling of an outbreak at its spa in the Bahamas in January.
The spa said the infections were a result of the spa’s inadequate maintenance of equipment, and the hotel, which owns the spa, agreed to pay $8.5 million in damages.
After a year of litigation, Key West agreed to a $20 million settlement and promised to implement new maintenance measures.
