News - Verdict of $45,000 in Apartment Mold Case
Our Foley & Small client was a Freshman at Ancilla College and a new recruit for the girls basketball team. Her first year was lost when the Hi-Tec Apartment she rented on the south side of Plymouth developed mold triggering an allergic reaction and respiratory complications. The apartment was on the bottom floor and was partly below ground level. Doug Small was able to locate a prior tenant in one of the sub-grade apartments who had also experienced a mold infestation and in deposition obtained incriminating testimony from former employees of the complex. After a three day trial, the jury returned a verdict for the student and her parents of $45,000, including a punitive damages award of $15,000.
