Geneva lawyer David Harrison is filing a lawsuit on behalf of his client, Elaine Williams, who was once an inmate at the Geneva county Jail.
Williams claims the non-toxic mold growing on the walls of the jail caused her to suffer a near deadly asthma attack.
Earlier this year, inmates were transferred to nearby jails while the 40-year-old Geneva County Jail was renovated because of the mold.
$50,000 was then spent on an improved air circulation system.
The Geneva County Commission has sent word of the impending lawsuit to its insurance company.
