The CEO of AeroThrust Holdings is being sued for negligence after allegedly allowing toxic mold to permeate throughout a condo unit his company managed.

Venus Lacalamita filed a lawsuit in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court against Mario Abad, his wife Claudia, their property management company, MGC Group Corp., and air conditioning maintenance business Frioclima Corp. Lacalamita claims that the mold got so bad in her Dadeland property it caused health problems, according to the Daily Business Review.

Lacalamita rented a unit at the Silver Palms at Dadeland from Abad in April 2016, according to the suit. But Lacalamita, who moved in with her 11-year-old son, said that by April 2018, the mold had moved to her clothes and personal belongings. Lacalamita’s lawyer, Jonathan B. Harris, told the Daily Business Review that the mold was 5 inches thick within the air duct, and it covered the walls, ceiling, floors, furniture and her clothes.

Lacalamita’s suit is seeking to recover for the loss of her personal belongings, as well as damages for pain and suffering.
