Date:12/11/2009

Mississippi-based law firm helps create joint venture group with five other firms to form "Dream Team" of plaintiffs' attorneys handling defective construction litigation

Ocean Spring, Miss. (Lexis Nexis) December 11, 2009 -- Luckey & Mullins, a Gulf Coast law firm that represents plaintiffs in a wide range of personal injury, construction defect, products liability and toxic mold cases, has joined forces with five other highly regarded law firms to form the Chinese Drywall Legal Network.

This unique joint venture group is made up of a diverse team of expert attorneys with a combined 150 years of experience in handling the complex legal issues that arise in disputes involving defective construction products, such as Chinese drywall. In addition to Ocean Spring, Miss.-based Luckey & Mullins, The Chinese Drywall Legal Network includes law firms with offices in Florida, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina and Washington, D.C.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there was a serious shortage of domestic drywall needed in the construction of new housing units. In response, U.S. distributors began importing large amounts of drywall from China, which was never adequately tested or inspected. It has now been found to contain significant amounts of sulfur and sulfur-related compounds and other impurities. In addition to a variety of structural problems that these compounds can cause to a house, homeowners have also been reporting physical ailments, including coughing, irritated eyes, sneezing, sore throat, difficulty breathing, bloody noses and headaches after being exposed to the problematic Chinese drywall.

"Our team of experienced and well-respected lawyers has successfully represented thousands of homeowners in other defective construction litigation cases, often winning multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients," said Steve Mullins, partner in Luckey & Mullins. "We are heavily involved in the multidistrict litigation Chinese drywall action in New Orleans right now and the attorneys in our network hold many key positions and are either co-chairs or members of 17 committees that have been formed to help streamline Chinese drywall cases through the courts. We are at the leading edge of this litigation and have access to the latest court decisions, experts and case strategies for helping consumers who have claims they wish to pursue."

According to Mullins, significantly more than 500 million pounds of Chinese drywall was imported into the U.S. and up to 100,000 homes, condos, and apartment units likely contain the problematic Chinese drywall right now. "We are at the tip of the iceberg right now," Mullins said, "and all we are sure of at this time is that this is the most significant construction defect problem to ever face this nation and the consequences of how we deal with it will be both far reaching and long lasting."
