Times Picayune Reports that Louisiana Homeowners Turning to Builders for Chinese Drywall Recovery

Published on July 5, 2009 by

On the Chinese Drywall Blog, we’ve frequently forecasted that homeowners will begin bringing suit directly against their builders for Chinese Drywall recovery.

This morning, the New Orleans Times Picayune reported that this is beginning to happen.

The article, titled Homeowners saddled with tainted Chinese Drywall are increasingly suing local builders for damages, suggests that “Louisiana home builders have increasingly become targets of litigation.” And the article profiles a Covington, Louisiana homeowner, Eric Carter, who sued his homebuilder Sunrise Homes.

Over the next few days here on the Chinese Drywall Blog, we will specifically analyze builder liability for Chinese Drywall claims, reviewing the relevant aspects of the New Home Warranty Act and other general builder warranties.

Remember also that Wolfe Law Group’s Scott Wolfe and Doug Reiser will be presenting at a Chinese Drywall seminar in New Orleans, LA on July 31, 2009. The seminar is for attorneys, builders, engineers, homeowners and anyone else affected or interested in the crisis. Read more about the seminar, and how to attend, here.

In the meantime, here are a few posts from our blog reviewing builders’ exposure to imported drywall claims, and explaining the differences between class action litigation and ordinary litigation:
