Mold findings....

Some more coverage of the Dyer mold problem here and here and here.

From the AP:

Miami's historic downtown federal courthouse suffers from extensive contamination of dangerous types of mold and should have some sections closed for cleaning, according to a new environmental study released Tuesday.

But the analysis by a private firm - hired by the attorney for the family of a judge who died in 2006 of a lung ailment - stops short of recommending that the 75-year-old building be shuttered completely.

The now-sealed courtroom formerly used by the U.S. Magistrate Judge Theodore Klein before his death contained "very heavy growth" of hazardous mold and there are concerns that spores have spread throughout the building through air conditioning systems, said attorney Alan Goldfarb.
