ORLANDO — A married couple is suing State Farm Florida Insurance Company for alleged breach of contract.

Marvin and Mary M. Scott filed a complaint on June 27 in the Orange County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendant breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that their property suffered direct, physical damage on July 19, 2013 caused by wind damage to their house’s exterior. The defendant, however, allegedly denied coverage for the damage.
