Chinese Drywall – $2.6 Million Dollar Plaintiff Verdict in MDL


Exposed drywall in new constructionIn the multi-district litigation arising out of Chinese manufactured drywall, Judge Fallon of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana issued an Opinion on April 8, 2010 finding in favor of plaintiff homeowners and awarding in excess of $2.6 million in damages against Taishan Gypsum Company. 

Additionally, Judge Fallon found that based upon the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, that “scientific, economic, and practicality concerns dictate that the proper remediation for the Plaintiff-intervenors is to remove all drywall in their homes, all items which have suffered corrosion as a result of the Chinese drywall, and all items which will be materially damaged in the process of removal.”

In the written Opinion, Judge Fallon cites to the Cozen O’Connor’s Chinese Drywall Litigation: Subrogation White Paper (2009) as an authoritative text in numerous places in his findings of fact.
