2010 Annual Mold Litigation Update pdf
Dear Mr. Henning and Mr. Schoenburg,
My name is Sharon Kramer. I don’t know if you know who I am or not, but I advocate for change in US health policy over the mold issue so we can get these illnesses out of the courtroom and into the physicians office where they belong.
This article was instigated by on my research into the conflicts of interest of Big Tobacco scientists in the mold issue:
Your 2010 report seems a bit off to me about the current state of health science over the matter. Instead of denying mold can harm through the pseudoscience of VeriTox et al, why don’t you instruct building owners to maintain their buildings so that people do not become ill in the first place?
When you promote the false concept that people claiming illness are just doing so because of trial lawyers, media and Junk Science, then you are leaving your clients with the impression that the mold in their buildings is not a serious concern and not a potential liability as a causation of illness in their occupants and employees.
When you promote this false concept into the psyche of building stakeholders, not only are you doing harm to the health and safety of the public by misinforming those who control the condition of the buildings; you are leaving the building stakeholders in a position of possibly needing defense attorneys and expert defense witnesses in the future because they did not maintain their buildings properly and as a result, people became ill and the building stakeholder got sued.
A letter to the NAA regarding an email they deleted without reading – please retract your amicus in the Abad case in Arizona – it is fraud by a political action committee, the National Apartment Association, that is furthering another fraud by another political action committee, the US Chamber of Commerce
Political Action Committee – NAA – files Amicus Brief in mold case (two infant deaths in mold filled apt – Wasatch Prop Mgmt) citing US Chamber/ACOEM ‘litigation defense report’ to disclaim health effects of indoor mold & limit financial risk for industry
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
