Details: The Lowe’s Drywall Settlement resolves a class action lawsuit (styled Glen Vereen v. Lowe’s Home Centers, Inc.) that alleges certain Chinese-manufactured drywall sold by Lowe’s was defective because it contained high levels of sulfur and/or other organic compounds. The defective Chinese drywall allegedly emits sulfide gasses and other chemicals that not only smell like rotten eggs, but also damages homes by corroding air-conditioners, refrigerators, electrical wiring and other metal surfaces and items in the home. The defective Chinese drywall has also allegedly caused physical irritation and health hazards to home occupants, including noxious odors, respiratory problems, sinus problems, eye irritation and nose bleeds.
The $6.5 million Lowe’s class action settlement will provide payments of Lowe’s gift cards and/or cash valued from $50 to $100,000 to class members. To be considered a member of the Lowe’s settlement class, you must meet one of two requirements:
