Chinese Drywall Being Used to Build Chesapeake, Virginia (VA) Hotel | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

In an article by Mike Saewitz from The Virginian Pilot, Chinese drywall was being used in the construction of a Chesapeake Comfort Inn & Suites hotel located in the 3300 block of South Military Highway. The drywall was found on March 26th during a routine inspection, and the city is demanding its removal from the hotel project. A criminal summons has been issued to Dilip Patel, the developer of the hotel, accusing Patel of violating state building codes. Patel told city officials that he would test the drywall and remove it if it was found to be defective. Patel has until June 24th to prove that the drywall is not defective or to remove it entirely, otherwise the developer will have to appear in court to face the charges.
