Chinese Drywall Developer Makes $5M Deal With Homeowners - Law360
ALERT! Chinese Drywall Manufacturer Settles with Louisiana Homeowners
Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin Co. Ltd., one of the companies responsible for manufacturing defective Chinese drywall, has agreed to settle two Louisiana cases set to go to trial on Monday, June 21st, in U.S. District Court Judge Eldon E. Fallon’s courtroom in New Orleans, Louisiana. Plaintiffs, Paul and Celeste Clement and John Campbell, own homes that contain Chinese drywall and brought suit against the Chinese manufacturer.
The cases involved two homes in Louisiana built with Chinese drywall manufactured by Knauf Tianjin. The cases were pending in federal court before Judge Eldon Fallon and were part of the multi-district litigation involving thousands of similarly situated homeowners. The cases were to have been before a jury. According to Dan Bryson, a key member of the Plaintiffs’ trial team and a member of the Chinese Drywall Legal Network, the details of the settlement are still being negotiated but are expected to include full removal and replacement of the problematic drywall, all corroded metal, such as copper wiring and plumbing pipes, and HVAC components and compensation for out of pocket expenditures while the house is being remediated. When asked about the settlement, Mr. Bryson stated, “I am pleased with the settlement and hopeful that Knauf will extend similar offers to other home and business owners plagued with the problematic drywall.”
Chinese drywall was used in the construction of thousands of homes throughout the country between 2003 and 2007 and causes blackening and pitting of electrical wires; a foul “rotten egg” odor; blackening and pitting of copper electrical wires; failure of air conditioning units and appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers, ceiling fans and alarm systems; pitting of faucets, handles and door fixtures and the blackening of jewelry and silverware; and some health problems. If you are concerned about your home, business or property and think you may have a claim, please contact the Chinese Drywall Legal Network at www.DrywallLegalHelp.com.
Members of the Chinese Drywall Legal Network represent over 650 clients in the states of Florida, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. One of the members of the Chinese Drywall Legal Network, Mr. Dan Bryson, has helped to develop and prosecute the first two Chinese drywall cases to go to court in the country. Both cases resulted in judgments in favor of the plaintiff homeowners. In addition, Mr. Bryson was an integral member of the Plaintiffs’ trial team that recently reached a settlement of two federal Chinese drywall lawsuits pending in Louisiana. The lawyers in the Chinese Drywall Legal Network have been pursuing the Chinese drywall litigation for more than a year and are heavily involved in the national litigation.

Recovering Damages from Chinese Drywall in Mississippi
The firm of Luckey & Mullins is handling hundreds of claims from Chinese Drywall in Mississippi. Serving the entire state, a large percentage of validated claims are coming from Southern Mississippi, south of Hattiesburg and all along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Luckey & Mullins offers the knowledge and experience to navigate through the complicated and confusing legal issues surrounding Chinese Drywall in Mississippi and have demonstrated consistent trial abilities that will prove beneficial to their clients when recovering damages associated with this unfortunate situation.
Chinese dry-wall in Mississippi was largely installed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when a short supply of American-manufactured drywall was unavailable. Chinese dry wall was thought to be the solution, until serious problems began turning up. The problems with Chinese drywall include the following:
- Chinese dry-wall emits sulfur dioxide, carbon disulfide, hydrogen sulfide, strontium sulfide and carbonyl sulfide in a gas form, which is believed to cause a wide variety of material, environmental and health problems.
- The Consumer Product Safety Commission has identified strong associations between Chinese drywall, hydrogen sulfide and the corrosion of metals.
- Sulfur dioxide corrodes electrical wiring (especially copper), waterlines (such as those leading to refrigerators), faucets, circuit breakers, smoke detectors and air conditioner coils.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, through its federal Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (ATSDR), advises doctors to look for symptoms that include eye irritation, sore throat, stuffy nose, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea and headaches after short term exposure to Chinese drywall.
According to the ATSDR, longer-term exposure can result in fatigue, loss of appetite, irritability, poor memory, dizziness and insomnia. The effects on health are still being studied, but people who have asthma, children, the elderly and people with heart and lung diseases seem to be more affected by the sulfur dioxide gases.
