U.S. District Court Judge Eldon Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana has ordered Taishan Gypsum Company, Ltd. to pay seven Virginia families a total of $2.6 million in remediation damages. Taishan is headquartered in Tai’an, China.

This is the first U.S. trial decision over Chinese drywall, which homeowners are now forced to removed because it emits noxious fumes, and corrodes wiring and plumbing.

New York based Seeger Weiss, LLP and New Orleans based Herman, Herman, Katz & Cotlar LLP represented the plaintiffs.

In today’s PR Newswire press release, Christopher Seeger of Seeger Weiss was quoted as saying: “The message Judge Fallon’s ruling sends to thousands of other homeowners who have been victimized is that help is finally coming – they will be made whole by the ravages of inferior Chinese drywall and will not have to bear the substantial costs of repairing their homes to get rid of it.”

Seeger Weiss LLP ranks among the nation’s preeminent law firms, with offices across the country in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and California. Their widely-praised attorneys represent plaintiffs in a variety of cases, including drug and toxic injury, personal injury, asbestos and mesothelioma, class action, and mass tort.
