Posted August 3, 2004 12:02 p.m. EDT

— The state attorney general is taking the builders of the moldy N.C. Central University dorms to court.

The $7 million lawsuit blames four of the five contractors for faulty construction which led to the growth of toxic mold. The fifth contractor made a deal with the state.

The two dorms were forced to close in 2003. Two contractors filed countersuits.

A state investigation found all five parties responsible for the mold.
