SUIT OVER DESTROYED HOME IS DISMISSED

The lawsuit brought by an elderly couple whose Springdale home was destroyed in an earthquake three years ago has been dismissed.

Neither the attorney for the Jerry Meinerts nor the attorney for State Farm Insurance would explain why they sought dismissal.The Meinerts' luxury home, was destroyed in a landslide triggered by the 5.9 magnitude quake on Sept. 2, 1992.

In their suit, the Meinerts said they had asked their insurance agent for "full and complete" coverage. But State Farm contended earthquake damage wasn't included in their policy.
