A San Clemente couple whose home is creeping down a hillside was awarded $898,000 in damages by an Orange County Superior Court jury that found a homeowners association and the developer responsible. The case rested on whether a cracked sprinkler line maintained by the Coast Homeowners Assn. soaked Daniel and Donna McClintock's property for two years, causing the slippage, attorneys for both sides said Wednesday.

The suit, filed Dec. 27 in Orange County Superior Court, also seeks a court order to force the start of remedial work.

An Orange County Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday that San Clemente police and paramedics were not negligent in the death of a Marine lieutenant who assaulted a police officer and then was fatally stabbed by a bystander. "It's a tragic case, there's no doubt about it," said Judge Donald E. Smallwood about the death of Marine Lt. Harry H. Summerfield. "He died under circumstances that raise questions that in my mind will never be answered."

A $1-million defamation lawsuit by former Police Chief Kelson McDaniel against several city officials and policemen has been dismissed. Superior Court Commissioner Ronald Bauer ruled that attorneys for McDaniel failed to prove that the former chief was libeled by criticism made by four police officers who spoke before the City Council.

Like most people living across the street from the 12th hole at the San Clemente Municipal Golf Course, Jim Morgan walks out of his front door ready to duck. For years, Avenida Santa Margarita residents have endured a hailstorm of golf balls that smash windows and score direct hits on unsuspecting visitors, joggers and pets. "It's like living in a shooting gallery," Morgan said. "The city should issue us a suit of armor."

Paramedics were "grossly negligent" in their treatment of a Marine lieutenant who bled to death after being stabbed by a bystander who was trying to help a San Clemente police officer, a medical expert testified Monday. Marine Lt. Harry H. Summerfield, 23, a Naval Academy graduate, was being investigated as a prowler when he clubbed Officer Allen Harry over the head with a tire iron in an attempt to escape arrest in the early morning hours of March 23, 1986, police contend.
