Federal Judge order Chinese Drywall maker to pay damages to Virginia homeowners
A federal judge ruled last month that seven homeowners should get a combined total of $2.6 million from the Chinese drywall manufacturer, Taishan Gypsum. The seven Virginian homeowners claimed the corrosive drywall had ruined their homes. But American Association for Justice (AAJ) President Anthony Tarricone says there is no guarantee the company will comply because Chinese companies do not have to comply with the rulings of U.S. courts, a point that bolsters support for passage of the Foreign Manufacturers Legal Accountability Act.
