Chinese Drywall Litigation Subject of Conference and Two Teleconferences

NEW ORLEANS, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorneys and experts will gather in New Orleans on June 18 to share information and network on the latest health and property damage controversy involving building materials: drywall imported from China.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least 13 states and the District of Columbia have reported "health symptoms or certain metal corrosion problems in their homes that may be related" to Chinese drywall. The CPSC said it was "moving aggressively" with the EPA and HHS to fully investigate the matter, including communication with the Chinese government. The CPSC said it has received more than 180 reports, starting with the first one on Dec. 22, 2008.
