                  STAKES LITIGATION

Wayne, PA, February 26, 2003 -- Oakstone Publishing, a Haights Cross Communications
company, today said it has introduced the online “Mold Litigation Reporter.” Published
by Oakstone’s Legal & Business division under the prestigious Andrews Publications
imprint, this latest online information subscription service provides in-depth, up-to-date
news about the unfolding issue of mold-related litigation throughout the United States.

The Mold Litigation Reporter covers new developments, legislation, novel and unique
approaches to the litigation, and Andrews’ traditional tracking of cases from start to
finish. Key court documents are available in each issue.

The problem of mold has moved further into the spotlight over the last two years and an
increasing number of insurance companies, municipalities, builders, architects, and others
find themselves parties to lawsuits involving mold.

“The need for solid information about mold lawsuits has grown tremendously and
Andrews intends to fill that gap with the new Mold Litigation Reporter. This unique
product builds on Andrews’ well-deserved reputation as one of the legal community’s
most reliable and complete information resources,” said Andrews President, Joanne

The Mold Litigation Reporter is published every other Wednesday on the Andrews
website,, and subscribers receive news updates between
publication dates. Access to the Andrews new archives is part of the subscription. In
addition, readers will find court documents including briefs, motions and answers.

Topics covered include:

      Mold, fungus and water damage
      Mold insurance coverage

     Mold damage claims against contractors, builders and architects
     Inverse condemnation claims against municipalities and other government
     Breach of contract
     Bad faith
     Pollution exclusion
     Deceptive trade practices

In June 2002, Andrews also hosted an audio conference titled “Mold: The Next
Asbestos?,” which is now available in audiotape. The Andrews Audio Conference
Series provides participants the opportunity to listen as key attorneys and experts discuss
the latest litigation and to join in a question-and-answer session, all from the convenience
of their offices. Multiple listeners attend the conference for one low price per phone line,
a time- and money-saver for busy attorneys.

The new Mold Litigation Reporter is one of more than 40 titles in the Andrews line of
newsletters and litigation reporters, a specialized line of publications developed by
Andrews to track lawsuits from start to finish and to provide lawyers with court
documents related to the cases.

For a limited time, Andrews is offering a special introductory price of $999 for 26 issues
of the Mold Litigation Reporter. To subscribe or for more details, contact Monique
