    Default American-made "synthetic" drywall now in court

    Here's an article I ran across. You guys might find it interesting.

    Apparently someone installed American-made "synthetic" drywall by Georgia-Pacific and is now claiming the same problems identified with the Chinese stuff. They're claiming sulfur smell, electronic components breaking down, etc.

    It's led to a class action suit.

    Here's the article:

    Hide it in plain sight between two sheets of paper and hang it on the wall.

    Hey, if there is someone else around, anywhere, blame them, that always works.

    Unfortunately, no one knows how widespread the problem is or isn't. I know there are several invalid testing methods out there that will produce false positives on good drywall. So, I'll believe American stuff is bad too when they verify there are no sheets of Chinese drywall in the building. Until then, I question the testing method.
