Spokane Valley couple seeks damages from Bonner County
SAGLE, Idaho — A Washington state couple is seeking about $370,000 from a county in northern Idaho after a landslide destroyed their home.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Lee and Myloa Stewart of Spokane Valley filed a precursor to a lawsuit against Bonner County on Monday.
The couple’s summer residence near Lake Pend Oreille was knocked off its foundation by a landslide on March 18.
The house was unoccupied at the time.
The landslide came when a portion of Talache Beach Road above the home failed amid soaking rains.
Bonner County officials say they don’t comment on pending litigation.
