A judge granted class-action status to a group of students who filed a lawsuit against Indiana University. The class-action suit alleges that the University breached its contract with thousands of students living in residence halls by providing substandard living conditions to the students. The alleged substandard conditions dealt with mold that was discovered in the residence halls. This decision came during a time in which Indiana University’s residence halls were being renovated. Although efforts were made to remove the mold, university officials stated that only a complete renovation of the University’s residence facilities would eliminate it. The plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit are seeking to recover damages for their injuries and losses, but the plaintiff’s counsel has not yet determined the dollar amount that the plaintiffs intend to receive. Under New York law, a mold lawsuit can be based on a claim for negligence, strict liability, implied and express contract, constructive eviction, breach of contract, and nuisance. Property owners can be held liable under a constructive eviction theory when the property owner should have known about the condition that created the mold. As this class action lawsuit demonstrates, mold litigation is developing into a successful field for plaintiffs and past mold litigation claims have created multi-million-dollar settlements.
