Defective Drywall?

The Sunday forum 4-18-2020 of the Virginia Pilot had a great summary article about the recent case for damages from the sale and use of defective drywall. I thought it was a cut and dry case and these poor people would never get their homes fixed. Glad to see there is a chain of ownership to the company that could be held accountable. There is a link that extends to companies in the US that may be part of the repayment and restoration for these homeowners.

I’m not sure who introduced the bill Foreign Manufactures Legal Accountability Act ( S.160/ H.R. 4678) but this law would make it easier for the U/S consumer to seek justice against foreign manufactures when they are responsible for defective and dangerous products. It reminds me of all the time I have seen warnings and recalls on lead tainted children products from overseas. I wonder who ever held them accountable?
