CAF Wins Lawsuit Against Airpower Museum

MIDLAND - The Commemorative Air Force has won a lawsuit it filed against the American Heritage Airpower Museum.

The CAF says the museum will now go into temporary receivership. The CAF says local attorney Mickey Jones, who was appointed as receiver, will be responsible for the election of qualified museum board members.

The lawsuit, which was filed back in February by the CAF, alleged that the museum was violating its bylaws and that some members of the museum board were illegally attempting to gain control of the museum from the CAF.

Museum bylaws mandate that the majority of the museum board must also be currently serving on the CAF general staff.

The lawsuit charged that because the majority of the museum's board members did not serve on the CAF general staff the board had no legal authority to conduct the business of the museum.
