Law firm sets town meeting to discuss drywall issues

By Staff | May 12, 2009

Attorney C. David Durkee, partner with the Florida law firm Roberts & Durkee, today announced the scheduling of a town hall meeting in Fort Myers to discuss possible toxic Chinese drywall in the community as well as other communities throughout Florida.
Durkee, who is filing a series of lawsuits on behalf of homeowners who say the Chinese-made drywall is causing health issues and damaging their homes and belongings, will answer questions at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 20, at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, 3427 Forum Boulevard.
The event is free and open to the public.
Attorney Wayne S. Kreger, partner with the national law firm Milstein, Adelman & Kreger, based in Santa Monica, Calif., will help lead the town meeting. Kreger is handling California class-action suits concerning toxic Chinese drywall and collaborating with Durkee and other attorneys nationwide.
The Fort Myers meeting follows a series of similar meetings in other parts of Florida.
The public may use the following criteria to assess whether homes and condos were built with Chinese-made drywall:
· They were built or remodeled between 2001 and 2008
· They have a sulfur or rotten-egg smell, particularly when all windows and doors are shut
· Residents suffer severe allergies, nose bleeds, upper-respiratory problems and other symptoms that disappear when they leave the homes for an extended time
· Air conditioning units have repeated corrosion of their coils
For more information about Chinese drywall or the May 20 town meeting, the public may contact Durkee at (305) 442-1700 or durkee@rdlawnet.com.
