Does anyone know about this case??
Dr. Richard Lipsey of Jacksonville, Florida writes:
I enjoyed attending the joint meeting with IUTOX and
the Chinese Society of Toxicology in Guilin, China, and
visiting the major hospitals in Shanghai and Beijing
afterwards, but I would like to make a suggestion regarding
recent developments inside IUTOX.
I am concerned with defense experts from Veritox, formerly
Global Tox, who testify in court for insurance companies,
presenting misleading information at the IUTOX convention
in Montreal. I was not there, but heard about it.
I testified in the Kelly-Frye Hearing in the Harold vs
Calif Casualty et al case in Sacramento in April of 2006
involving Kelman, Robbins and others from Veritox's 2004
summary of rodent studies regarding the risk from inhaled
mycotoxins in indoor office and residential environments.
The judge excluded the Veritox study of 2004 by Veritox's
Bruce Kelman and others based on my testimony that selected
rodent studies cannot be used to make conclusions that
mycotoxin levels can never get high enough in the air to
harm humans, ie ...."that human mycotoxicoses are
implausible following inhalation exposure to mycotoxins in
mold-contaminated home, school or office environments".
I told the court such a conclusion is junk science
and the judge decided not to allow the study to be
considered by the jury in the Harold case. The Harold
family was awarded over $2 million in that case. (Superior
Court, County of Sacramento, Case # O2AS04291)
