Drywall prompts meeting

March 20, 2009 10:44AM

C. David Durkee, a Coral Gables attorney behind a class action lawsuit over defective high-sulfur drywall made in China, is seeking more information in a town hall-style meeting today. He said homeowners at Vizcaya, a Delray Beach development built by Centerline Homes, have complaints that are similar to those from other homeowners with defective Chinese drywall. The Florida Department of Health is tracking about 150 complaints about defective drywall causing metal corrosion and an odor of sulfur or rotten eggs in homes.
