Blackfeet Tribe Files Toxic Mold Suit




Blackfeet Tribe Files Toxic Mold Suit

The Blackfeet Tribe in Montana recently filed a toxic mold suit against the Housing Authority.

The suit claims that members of the tribe were harmed by toxic mold that were found in their homes.

Homes Built Using Grants

Members of the tribe you filed the suit claim that between 1977 and 1980, the Housing Authority developed 153 homes using grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The homes were built on the northwest Montana reservation.

Lawsuit Claims

According to the suit, the homes were built with wood foundations, despite the wants of the homeowners.

Throughout the years, moisture from groundwater eventually led to the instability of the houses and the contamination of toxic mold and dried sewage.

The suit states that as a result of this toxic mold, many residents suffered from various illnesses, including:

• Kidney failure
• Cancer
• Nosebleeds
• Headaches

The plaintiffs are hoping that the suit will enable them to get their houses repaired and rebuilt.
