Tenant Claims Injury by Mold in Her Apartment
LVT Number: #28671
Tenant sued landlord, claiming personal injuries due to exposure to toxic mold and fungi in her apartment. Tenant claimed lost wages but failed to produce her employment records for the prior eight years. The court then barred tenant from producing these records at trial since she had failed to produce them during pretrial questioning and document production. The court also denied tenant's request to amend her claim to include property damage. Tenant appealed and won.
