    Yes. It does matter. ACOEM and the WSJ have broad impact from
    many levels. The misinformation is being disseminated to
    physicians and property owners who will most likely never see
    the inside of a courtroom or be aware of mold litigation.

    What is happening as a result of the misinfo is that people are
    not able to obtain viable medical treatment early on because
    their physicians are not being trained properly to investigate
    the root cause of illness - before the illnesses become
    severe. Property owners are not being informed of the serious
    need to keep their buildings mold/water damage free. They are
    being told the illnesses are the result of "trial lawyers,
    media hype and hysteria". This causes a built in contention
    right from the get go when one person is made ill from
    another's property. This is what keeps the matter in the

    What occurs within the courtroom is simply a symptom of a
    greater illness. In order to cure this symptom (ie. get this
    issue out of the courts), the greater illness has to be
    addressed. Education of physicians and the public is key to
    stopping the physicial and financial woes caused by the matter.
    It's the only way to effectively get this issue out of the
    courts. And it starts will dispelling the non-science that has
    been promoted by the WSJ and ACOEM.
