    Gary Giordano is suing AMEX Assurance Company, seeking $3.5 million from an insurance policy taken out less than a week before Robyn Gardner disappeared while snorkeling off the Aruban coast.

    Giordano was held by authorities on suspicion of being involved in Gardner's disappearance, but was released in November when a judge said there wasn't enough evidence to hold him.  In December, he told FOX's Geraldo Rivera that he's not responsible for Gardner's death.

    (Giordano) "I'm thinkin' that she's behind me, she's gonna find her way.  And when I got to shore, I turned.  I didn't see her."

    American Express says since there's no body, they won't consider the claim until August, one year after Gardner vanished.
