In an order dated July 27, Judge Eldon E. Fallon announced the members of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) in the Chinese-Manufactured Drywall Products Liability Litigation (MDL NO. 2047).  Jerrold Parker, Managing Partner with Parker Waichman LLP, was appointed  to the  PSC.

All pending Chinese Drywall lawsuits filed around the country have been consolidated before Judge Fallon in the  U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana in New Orleans.

Jordan Chaikin, an attorney with Parker Waichman LLP, said the firm was pleased with Mr. Parker’s appointment.  “It is a tremendous honor and  responsibility to be appointed to the Committee,” he said.   “We look forward to opportunity to represent Chinese drywall plaintiffs in this way.” Parker Waichman LLP filed the first Chinese drywall lawsuit in federal court earlier this year.

The PSC  will, among other things,  conduct and coordinate the discovery stage of this litigation with the defendant’s representatives or committee. The PSC will also act as a spokesperson for all plaintiffs at pretrial proceedings and in response to any inquiries by the Court.
