State Farm settles with another hurricane victim

State Farm Fire & Casualty Co. has

settled another lawsuit with a policyholder whose home was

destroyed in Hurricane Katrina.

Neither side would release terms of the agreement reached Friday

between the insurer and Judy Guice, of Ocean Springs.

Guice sought full coverage of insured losses of more than

$800,000 and punitive damages.

"We're pleased to settle this case without costly and lengthy

litigation, which is in no one's best interest," said State Farm

spokesman Fraser Engerman, who would not comment further in an

article at www.sunherald.com.

Guice had asked a federal judge to allow her to join other

policyholders whose homes were reduced to slabs in a class action

suit against the Bloomington, Ill., insurer.

But U.S. District Judge L.T. Senter Jr. denied her request

earlier this year.
