Now in defense of the Sullivan's I have to pipe in here. Yes ok so John isn't the swiftest one on the block and ok he may not be the most attractive. But does that justify all your comments? Your all making yourselves sound like your in the same league here as far as I'm concerned.

Listen to me... for how long have we all known about the risk mold posed to our health? If I had known about the mold this woman claims to have ruined her health and life I would have moved out a long time before it started to do smell as described in the article and gotten to the degree she claims.

There have been so many stories and education on the dangers of mold. I feel this is a shake down big time and people rooting to lynch the Sullivans. Shame on you too!

This woman...was she that ignorant as to not know the dangers of mold! She worked for the MBTA and is now retired after 20 years. Is this her golden ticket out? To sue the balls off the Sullivans. she had to have had a brain up till now to hold down a job like she had and retire.

This mold issue happened in 2004. If I remember there was a family in the news a few years back from 2004 now that had to leave their home as well and just take a loss of everything. Because of the mold in their home. This was a family not far from here.

That Story was on the news over and over and also in the local papers.Photos of the condition of her home and the family and so on...

20/20 did pieces on it and the today show. So you can't sit there and tell me she had no idea of the dangers of mold.

And when there is a smell that bad what the heck was she waiting for? For the spores to carry her off to mold land?

I would have broken my lease and gone eleswhere and not have stayed in a place that would have endangered my health or life. I think she's looking for a hand out and you should all be ashamed of yourself for publically hanging the whole Sullivan family in the press. Disgraceful!

I've known Kevin Sullivan and his family my whole life. 50 years. He is humble, kind and generous and many people don't know that. John had issues big time but he isn't this monster you all make him out to be. Their family has had to endure more than their share of losses and you all just sit here loving the idea of seeing them destroyed by a disgruntled tenant who should have the presence of mind and knowledge to get out if something was that bad and that could potentially harm her health!

Shame on all of you!
