Another Chinese Drywall Case

Lucky for the homeowners in the Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, Grand Prairie, Weatherford, and surrounding areas, the Chinese drywall cases are a non-issue. But for many of the people along the Texas Gulf Coast and other Gulf Coast areas, it is a major and expensive problem.
WCI Communities is a homebuilder in the Southeastern United States. They had to file bankruptcy in 2009 because of issues related to Chinese drywall. This situation is discussed in the Insurance Journal. The article in the Insurance Journal is titled “WCI Chinese Drywall Trust Files Suit Against 14 Insurers”. The WCI Drywall Trust was formed in July 2009, after the bankruptcy of the homebuilder WCI Communities and its subsidiaries. Its purpose is to assume liability for claims alleging harm from Chinese drywall installed in homes built by WCI. More than 700 homeowners may seek recovery through the Trust.
The Trust filed suit against 14 insurance companies in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, seeking indemnification for losses arising from claims for the development and sale of homes allegedly containing defective Chinese manufactured drywall.
