Herman, Herman & Katz: Homeowners Victimized by Defective Chinese Drywall From Peoples Rebulic of China Will Have Their Day in Court

May 29, 2015, 17:16 ET from Herman, Herman & Katz

NEW ORLEANS, May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 3,000 homeowners located in the Gulf States and Virginia who were victims of tainted drywall from the Peoples Republic of China will have a trial on June 9, 2015.

The damages trial, which will be overseen by Judge Eldon Fallon of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, is a result of the July 17, 2014 judgment wherein Judge Fallon found Taishan and several other Chinese Manufactures in civil and criminal contempt.  Since that ruling, dozens of law firms from the Gulf Coast and East Coast have been sifting through millions of documents and have discovered facts charging the affiliates of the Chinese Drywall Corporations of violating a Court injunction.  It is anticipated that, following the damage trial on June 9, document discovery and depositions will continue throughout the summer. A number of Chinese corporate executives have been ordered to appear for depositions in June and July 2015.

Arnold Levin as Lead Counsel and Russ Herman as Liaison Counsel for the plaintiffs said, "We will pursue the wrongdoers who have damaged the U.S. citizens with defective and harmful building products until we have exhausted the legal process on behalf of our innocent homeowners."

It is estimated that nine figure sums will result from the June 9 damage trial to balance the books for those who have suffered more than eight years.
