MIAMI (CN) – U.S. Magistrate Judge Ted Klein died from toxic mold in the David W. Dyer Federal Courthouse, his children say in a wrongful death claim against eight construction and environmental management companies.
Klein, a U.S. magistrate and former federal prosecutor, died in September 2006. His children, Andrew and Jennifer Klein, say he died of mycotoxins that grew and circulated because of shoddy construction work. They say the toxic mold also destroyed furniture, wallpaper, drywall and other parts of the building.
