    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)
