New Lawsuit in Destructive Chinese Drywall Cases

Wednesday, 30 Jul 2014 02:32 PM

Lawyers for people who say defective Chinese drywall wrecked their homes are again suing the manufacturers. And the lawsuit adds a new defendant: the Chinese commission that oversees 117 companies including in aerospace, nuclear power and electronics.

Attorney Lenny Davis says the lawsuit is trying to get the Chinese officials' attention.

The lawsuit filed Wednesday comes two weeks after U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon held Taishan Gypsum Co. Ltd. and related defendants in contempt of court for ignoring court proceedings over harm done by the drywall. He ordered Taishan to pay $55,000 in fines and attorneys' fees, and to stop doing business in the U.S.

The new lawsuit adds to the list of defendants China's State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

Taishan's New Orleans attorney declined to comment.
