SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A former court official is suing Spartanburg County over problems with mold.
Hope Blackley resigned as Spartanburg County clerk of court earlier this year.
The lawsuit filed by Blackley names the county, some council members and mold removal companies.
Blackley claims “toxic” mold exposure made her “totally disabled for periods of time.”
The suit claims Spartanburg County failed to protect her from danger even though leaders were aware of the mold and alleges the defendants “acted with conscious disregard for her life.”
