SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 10 1930 DENIED DAMAGES IN PLANE DEATH Estate Loses Suit Against State Fair Board for Second Time. DES MOINES, (SP--For the second time the state supreme court ruled Tuesday against the estate of Vernon F. Devotie, which sought $17,000 damages for Devotie's death in an airplane accident at the Iowa State fair in 1930. The estate originally sued the state fair board but in its first opinion the supreme court held the board was an arm of the state government and was not responsible for civil damages. Later, the legislature allowed a $1,500 claims bill to reimburse the estate but it was refused and a second suit against members of the board as individuals was started. Charges Conspiracy. In the second suit the Devotie estate charged that members of the fair hoard conspired as individuals to violate aeronautics laws by contracting with an aerial circus firm for stunt flying, over the crowded fairgrounds. The attorneys for the state challenged the second suit on the grounds that there was no new cause of action since fair board members acted in their official capacity and the supreme court upheld the contention. Devotie, a spectator, was killed when two planes collided and fell.' His home-was at Mitchellville. The suit was brought by Devotie's father, R. G. Devotie. Reverses County Verdict. In another opinion the court reversed a Cinton county verdict granting damages to Anna Meggers for injuries suffered when a car in which she was riding crashed into a truck owned by C. R. KinleyJune 11, 1933. The supreme court held the lower court erred in its instructions. The court also reversed a Johnson county district court order nullifying the appointment of the Davenport Bank and Trust company as a trustee of the estate of George S. Carson of Iowa City.
