(Newser) – Annie Leibovitz's $24 million question looms Tuesday, the AP reports: Will the photographer of the stars be able to repay a $24 million loan or lose the rights to her catalog of iconic photographs. With such a staggering amount due in only a few days, Leibovitz’s best option may be to file for bankruptcy, legal experts say. A bankruptcy filing would suspend the suit filed by creditor Art Capital Group for failing to cooperate with repayment.
