Morris College faces class action lawsuit for mold


A group of five current and former Morris College students filed a lawsuit against the college this week for mold infestation in the student dormitories on campus.

A copy of the summons and class action complaint was sent to The Sumter Item late Thursday by attorney John Harrell of Harrell Law Firm, PA, in Charleston. The firm said it is representing the students in the case.

The five plaintiffs were — or are current — residents in student housing on the Morris campus, 100 West College St. The plaintiffs are Teanna Caswell, Maya Robinson, Kiesha Robinson, Myrcle Fleming and Kianna Joint.

According to the suit, the plaintiffs are seeking at least $55 million in damages.
