Mealey's (October 6, 2015, 12:08 PM EDT) -- CHICAGO — A pollution exclusion does not bar underlying claims arising out of mold exposure because mold or fungi are not included in the list of excluded pollutants and the insurer’s intent to exclude mold claims is not conveyed in the exclusion, the Second Division of the First District Illinois Appellate Court said Sept. 30 (In re Liquidation of Legion Indemnity Co., Re: Claim No. 6348175-006, No. 1-14-0452, Ill. App., 1st Dist., 2nd Div.; 2015 Ill. App. Unpub. LEXIS 2219).
