Ed McMahon Settles Suit Over Mold for $7.2 Million
By JEAN GUCCIONE
LA TIMES STAFF WRITER
Insurers and others have agreed to pay Ed McMahon $7.2 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that toxic mold spread through his Beverly Hills home, sickening the former “Tonight Show” sidekick and his wife and killing their dog, according to court records.
The settlement is the highest published recovery in the nation by an individual alleging property damage in a mold case, said Chicago attorney Michael Childress, who leads an American Trial Lawyers Assn. group that tracks such litigation.
McMahon and his wife, Pamela, sued American Equity Insurance Co. in April 2002 for breach of contract, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The couple and members of their household staff were sickened by toxic mold that spread through their six-bedroom, Mediterranean-style house after contractors failed to properly clean up water damage from a broken pipe, their lawsuit alleged.
McMahon’s doctor ordered the then-80-year-old to move out of his 8,000-square-foot house overlooking Coldwater Canyon after he spent four months on antibiotics for coughing, sneezing and congestion.
