Our Sean Gay recently blogged here and here about recent complaints out of Florida and elsewhere concerning defective Chinese-manufactured drywall that emits noxious sulfur gas and has been linked to problems with electrical and air conditioning systems. The latest news is that several such claims have recently been consolidated into a single federal class action lawsuit. After much wrangling by the respective parties over where the consolidated cases would be heard, a panel of federal judges decided that the matter would go to Judge Fallon of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. You can read more about the consolidation decision at consumeraffairs.com. To follow the latest developments in the case check out the Court’s web page for the matter.
