Re: Surprise! Veritox Finds Nothing Wrong w/Weyerhaeuser Hou

"Scott said industrial hygienist Coreen Robbins found "no basis for
concern about the indoor air quality" of the home. The Quadrant
attorney went on to offer to settle the claim by making
the "recommended repairs" to the home free of charge if the plaintiff
agreed to drop the lawsuit."
If there is no basis for concerns of IAQ according to Coreen, then why
were there "recommended repairs" that Quadrant was willing to pay for
in exchange for dropping the lawsuit?
"Penny Silly-um". Clever!!
