LOUIS — The Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on July 31 held that a medical clinic insured's expenditures for MRI repair and relocation and repair of other specialty equipment are "extra expenses" under its insurance policy, affirming a lower court’s ruling in favor of the insured in a coverage dispute arising from tornado damage (Midwest Regional Allergy, Asthma, Arthritis & Osteoporosis Center, P.C., et al. v. The Cincinnati Insurance Co., No. 14-3026, 8th Cir.; 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 13430).
