Oct. 11, 2011) The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, in ruling that Legionella bacteria did not constitute “pollutants,” as defined in a pollution exclusion, and in disagreeing with a decision from Southern District of Florida in which living organisms were determined to be “pollutants,” appears to have created a split between Florida district courts on this issue.
