Court Report


John F. Strohmaier, Judge

Criminal Sentencing

He must pay $800 court costs and $400 attorney fees.

Civil Judgment

Financial Assistance, Inc., the petitioner, won a $3,476.91 default judgment against Wilma Webb and James Webb, Sr., of Harrington, in a matter involving an unpaid loan from 2011.

New Civil Cases

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office filed a petition for an extreme risk protection order against Dewitt Elwood Hantz, Jr., asking the court’s permission to remove firearms from his residence on Fisher Road East, Reardan, for safekeeping. The petitioner described Hantz as posing “significant danger of causing personal injury to self or others” and that he “won’t surrender the firearms voluntarily.”

U.S. Bank National Association seeks payment of $7,361.66 from Janice E. Kruger in a matter involving credit account debt.

Myrna A. Morris, of Davenport, seeks a domestic violence protection order against Jesse J. Arruda.

In their countersuit to litigation filed in January by Seven Bays Estates Unlimited, respondents Phil and Debbie Clements named directors Calvin “Butch” Morgan, Gail Young and Vicki Parrish as third-party defendants and claim they did not act in good faith as board members and engaged in a “civil conspiracy” when they directed employee Aaron Michael to remove retaining wall blocks from a “disputed area” between properties owned by the Clements and the homeowners’ association on Oct. 19 of last year. The Clements ask the court for quiet title on the disputed area, noting that it has been in their possession or that of previous owners for at least 10 years, and that Lakeview Cove Road be declared as the true boundary. They also claim that Michael’s action had the effect of “directly removing lateral support” for the Clements’ driveway and the retaining wall, which had been constructed with the “actual knowledge” of the defendants, and “causing undermining and sloughing of the land, blocking access to (their) property.” Through their attorney, Brent T. Sullivan, the Clements also dispute the original claim by the association’s attorney, Kevin Roberts, that they have trespassed on property owned by the association and noted that a survey that came to that conclusion was “conducted apparently without the approval of the (association) board,” of which Mr. Clements is an elected member.
