JURY SAYS SINGER'S NOT AT FAULT

Country singer Barbara Mandrell and her husband were not liable for injuries suffered by a woman who fell on a stairway aboard the couple's yacht, a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., jury ruled. Pamela Schneider, 27, of Tallahassee, slipped on a vinyl floor covering in 1986 while working as a crew member aboard the vessel. The 72-foot yacht was chartered to a New York man at the time, but Schneider contended Mandrell and husband Kenneth Dudney, as owners, were responsible. Dudney said Friday's verdict was "very much a relief."
