A lawsuit filed against one of the country’s largest gypsum wallboard manufacturers, claiming the wallboard exhibited the same characteristics of the defective Chinese Drywall has been dismissed by Marshall County, Alabama Circuit Court Judge Tim Jolley.

The lawsuit, Clark vs. National Gypsum, was dismissed with prejudice, which means the plaintiffs are forbidden from bringing the same claim against the company at a later date.

Craig Weisbruch, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for National Gypsum said, the “result is yet another confirmation of the quality and safety of our products and another blow to those making baseless claims against our company.”

In April, an Arizona federal judge dismissed a putative national class action against the drywall manufacturer, which claimed the drywall was defective and emitted high levels of sulfur, damaged property inside homes and caused health symptoms, Building Online reported. The judge stated that the plaintiff did not produce credible scientific evidence that could substantiate the allegations.

Weisbruch said, “All National Gypsum wallboard has passed the industry’s most rigorous testing and certification processes for indoor air quality and has been used by the U.S. Green Building Council in its buildings.” He also said, “All credible scientific evidence – including studies by the federal government’s leading safety experts – has led to the same conclusion,” and that, “National Gypsum wallboard does not pose the issues associated with defective Chinese drywall.”
