KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Missouri federal judge on Oct. 16 granted summary judgment in favor of a company, finding that a former employee's lawsuit was barred by res judicata because he previously entered a settlement that resolved all of his mold-related exposure claims (Roger Mueller v. Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society, et al., No. 12-0283, W.D. Mo.; 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 148340).
