Federal Judge in Louisiana Hands Down First Chinese Drywall Verdict

U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana ordered a Chinese drywall manufacturer, Taishan Gypsum Company, Ltd., to pay seven Virginia families over $2.6 million in remediation damages. Judge Fallon noted "The level of corrosive sulfur gases emitted by Chinese drywall…exceeded the safe level established by recognized standards."

OK they have a judgment, let's see them collect it. wink

I also wonder why a Louisiana judge is trying a Virginia case? Was the drywall traced to a Louisiana distributor?
That would tend to verify my suspicion that all of this may get traced to a few ship loads that landed in New Orleans and Tampa. That does seem to be ground zero.
