Chinese drywall case filed in Virginia

“Five Hampton Roads home-owners filed a lawsuit Friday against a local developer, a distributor and a Chinese manufacturer of defective drywall, seeking damages in excess of $5 million and class-action status.

Among the allegations in the lawsuit, filed in Norfolk’s U.S. District Court, is that the companies were negligent for selling the drywall and not warning homeowners and customers that it was defective.

Such wallboard has been the focus of complaints in several states by people who say it emits a corrosive gas that damages household electrical systems and causes respiratory illness.”
