A Miami judge approved a lawsuit for class-action status over the issue of tainted drywall imported from China.
The lawsuit will represent 152 families and was filed against homebuilder South Kendall Construction Corp., Palm Isles Holdings, Keys Gate Realty and Banner Supply.
The lawsuit alleges that some of the drywall installed in Florida homes releases large amounts of hydrogen sulfide, which corrodes metal.
The suit also claims the contaminated drywall causes breathing problems and nosebleeds. Nirvi Shah, Miami Herald 05/28/2010
