Chinese drywall ruling opens door for claims
A Louisiana judge recently awarded $2.6 million to seven Virginia families whose homes were ruined by sulfur-emitting drywall imported from China, setting the standard for new claims from the thousands of Texas homeowners and renters affected by this product.
Tainted drywall from China can cause serious health problems as well as substantial property damage. The sulfur gases released by the drywall creates a noxious odor indoors, making homes difficult if not impossible (and dangerous) to live in. It has also been connected to corrosion of house wiring and air conditioning units, creating a fire hazard.
The case is In Re Chinese-Manufactured Drywall Products Liability Litigation, 09-MD-02047, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana.
