A carrier requested reconsideration of the disallowance of its claim for refund of an amount set off because of damages incurred in transit to a Navy member's household goods. The Navy's report of events concerning liability for damages was accepted in view of a dispute about facts and lack of evidence contradicting the Navy's version; unsupported allegations by the carrier did not rebut a prima facie case of its liability. The fact that damages were not noted on the delivery receipt did not absolve the carrier of liability since timely notice was given to the carrier of damages discovered later.
