Claims for damages due to mold receive boost.

The Wall Street Journal (4/2, A17, Barbanel, Subscription Publication) reports that a recent decision by a key appellate court in Manhattan ruled in favor of legal claims for health damages caused by mold, claiming that the scientific evidence of the harm caused by mold was strong enough to support the claims. The Journal notes that some condo and co-op lawyers worry that the decision could lead to a wave of new personal-injury lawsuits for mold injuries.
