Oregon – In a court testimony yesterday, Bryan Hardin with Globaltox testified against a family who claimed mold had destroyed their family. Hardin, one of the principals of Globaltox, an organization who has had an questionable history of conflict of interest and ethics with previous alleged scandals with their defense work against among other things, mold victims, announced that as of July 31, Globaltox had formally changed their name to Veritox. As the Latin derivative, Verite means truth. Could there be some underlying truth to the name change of Globaltox to Veritox or a convenient image change in lieu negative exposure they have been receiving lately?
This statement came as no surprise to many experts in the business who have been watching the alleged antics of the key players in this business involve themselves into questionably ethical involvements.
The testimony will be discussed next week as closing arguments and jury instructions are announced today in one of Oregon?s most riveting mold trials. This entire trial will truly set precedence for a state with such an insurance friendly reputation. But this case goes beyond insurance games; it deals with alleged building practices, code violations and responsibility in general.
