This book is intended as a practical reference for lawyers and others who deal with the impact of mold on commercial and residential real estate, whether from the vantage point of insurance, construction, or ownership, and who want to gain a commonsense understanding of the current legal issues affecting mold litigation. The book is not intended to be an exhaustive legal treatise on mold litigation, but rather a practical road map for those who have limited experience in handling mold claims. Forms, checklists, and copies of actual petitions and orders from recent mold cases in the US are included. This edition adds a new chapter on floods and hurricanes, and updates on the science behind mold litigation and on government regulations. King has a medical degree from the U. of Texas and a law degree from the Oklahoma City U. School of Law.
