Seifart v. Banner Supply (Chinese Drywall)


06/08/10 – 06/18/10


In this construction industry products liabilty proceeding, plaintiff Armin and Lisa Seifart alleged Knauf Gips K G of manufacturing defective drywall which emitted toxic, corrosive, bad-smelling hydrogen sulfide gas that could damage appliances, and sicken homeowners. Armin and Lisa Seifart's drywall was purchased at Banner Supply. Banner, in turn, got the drywall from Knauf in China. Chinese drywall was used to meet the increased demand for construction supplies after Hurricane Katrina. According to the plaintiff, Banner knew that it had supplied defective drywall to builders, but failed to disclose the problems.
Siefart v. Banner Supply was the nation's first Chinese Drywall suit to go to trial in state court.

The plaintiff was represented by attorneys Ervin Gonzalez and Patrick Montoya. The defendant in this case, Knauf Gips K G and other joining defendants were represented by attorneys Todd Ehrenreich and Peter Spillis.
