A Baltimore, Maryland jury awarded two siblings more than $2.5 million dollars as a result of lead paint exposure. Searra Wallace, 17 and Dontae Wallace, 20, received the bulk of their verdict against City Homes, Inc. for future lost wages.

Their mothers efforts to move her family away from lead paint exposure was thwarted by inaccurate information provided by the Kennedy-Krieger Institute Lead Abatement program and City Homes, a non-profit organization which argued at trial that the children's incapacities resulted from earlier lead paint exposure.

Both siblings have struggled throughout their school careers and it appears that no argument was made that they had not suffered from lead paint exposure.
