Sean Payton, coach of the Saints was chosen to be the lead plaintiff in a 591 page class-action suit filed against Knauf Plasterboard Tainjin Co. Ltd. Knauf Plasterboard Tainjin Co. Ltd. Was responsible for manufacturing drywall that is believed to be related to the corrosion of copper wiring and other metal in the home.  This drywall is also suspected of causing health problems ranging from a runny nose or a head-ache to severe allergic reactions, nose bleeds, and upper respiratory irritation.
Payton was chosen to be lead plaintiff because he was one of the first in his area to report electrical failures and allergic reactions to the drywall in his own home says Attorney Daniel Becnel Jr.
“It really upset him a lot because this was all going on while he was trying to prepare for training camp,” Attorney Becnel said.
About 2,100 people signed up to be apart of the suit filed Wed. Dec. 9th 2009 against Knauf Plasterboard Tainjin Co. Ltd.  Some 600 people were late getting on board with this suit.  However, Russ Herman, lead plaintiff counsel in the national litigation plans to file those 600 into an overseas complaint.
