At 10:00 the COA will hear Kent Holifield and Laurie Holifield v. City Salvage, Inc.
In 2009, the Holifields purchased a house built in 2008 by Defendant Ronny Hill Construction, Inc. located in Laurel. They claim that in 2011, they discovered the existence of Chinese-manufactured drywall in the walls of their home and that they suffered damages as a result. City Salvage sold drywall to Ronny Hill Const. City Salvage purchased the drywall from Defendant Gulf Coast Shelter, Inc.. City Salvage filed a third-party complaint against Gulf Coast for selling the allegedly defective Chinese drywall.
City Salvage filed a motion for summary judgment arguing that it was an “innocent seller” under the MPLA. The trial court granted City Salvage’s motion and the Holifields appealed.
