The Army Claims Service requested reconsideration of a decision in which GAO concluded that the Government had not established a prima facie case of carrier liability with regard to damage to a sofa transported by a carrier. Upon request for reconsideration, the Army contended that the record clearly established a prima facie case of carrier liability with regard to the damage to the sofa frame and to all the sofa legs. GAO did not believe that the Army presented any additional evidence not considered in the prior decision, nor that it showed that the decision was in error. Therefore, the prior decision was affirmed.
