Mold litigation grabbed the attention of the insurance industry when a Texas jury awarded over $32 million against a homeowner's insurance carrier in the case of Allison v. Fire Insurance Exchange, informally referred to as "Ballard." In Florida, mold litigation has flourished since a jury awarded $14 million in a mold claim arising out of the construction of the Martin County courthouse.
