This case involves a middle school teacher in Mississippi who began experiencing serious respiratory symptoms after a major flood occurred. After the flood, which had engulfed the first floor of the elementary school where she taught, had subsided, the school lacked sufficient funds to undertake repairs. The building structure had become irreparably damaged, and had become infested with termites and other pests . Instead, they opted to close off the damaged first floor of the building and hold classes on the second floor while the school district purchased modular classrooms. While teaching in the school, the teacher was diagnosed with asthma and bronchitis. She was treated with moxifloxacin hydrochloride. After a few months, she collapsed while teaching and was rushed to the hospital. It was alleged that the flooded conditions on the school’s first floor had led to the growth of toxic black mold throughout the school building.
