In a landmark ruling, the Honorable Eldon E. Fallon, US District Judge for Eastern District of Louisiana, who oversees the Chinese Drywall MDL litigation in New Orleans, La., held that Chinese manufacturer, Taishan Gypsum Co. Ltd, was subject to jurisdiction of US courts and refused to vacate a prior default judgment against Taishan.
HHK Partners, Russ Herman, Esq., MDL Lead Counsel for the Plaintiffs and Leonard Davis, Esq. actively participated in discovery and depositions in Hong Kong, which developed the evidentiary basis for asserting jurisdiction over the Chinese manufacturer and HHK Partner Steve Herman. Esq. has been involved in actual trials of Chinese Drywall claims.
