Two former employees who claimed their illnesses were caused by mold and fungi exposure at Denver International Airport had their class-action claim dismissed by the Colorado Supreme Court.
The two United Airlines employees, Terri Crandall and Joann Hubbard, claimed they experienced pneumonia, headaches, nausea, shortness of breath and bronchitis beginning in 1995 and suspected environmental contamination.
Colorado Supreme Court justices say the women didn't file their notice of claim with Denver within a 180-day time period required bylaw.
John Fognani, an attorney representing the women, said his clients were extremely disappointed. Chris Doering, an assistant Denver city attorney, said the city is pleased with the decision.
Doering says the city has not found a major mold issue at the airport.
