Remediation plan rejected for Chinese-made drywall

A New Orleans federal judge presiding over a lawsuit on local homes built with tainted Chinese-made drywall has ruled against a plan by a manufacturer to use retrofitted air conditioners as a way to help fix the homes.

In a preliminary hearing U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon ruled that a plan by Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin Co. Ltd. to use the air conditioners was not reliable and that expert testimony about their use would not be considered in the main hearing set to begin on February 19, 2010.

Richard Lewis, a partner at Hausfeld LLP, handled the oral argument on this issue.
