The first federal trial in the nationwide Chinese drywall controversy began on February 19th, 2010 in New Orleans and is ongoing. This “bellwether” trial involves seven Virginia plaintiffs whose homes contain drywall manufactured by China-based Taishan Gypsum Co.

As previously reported, all federal Chinese Drywall products liability actions have been consolidated in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana as part of the Chinese Manufactured Drywall Multi-District Litigation (“MDL”).
