After one lawsuit was filed last month against a contractor responsible for the construction of homes in Talega, a second lawsuit was filed by the same law firm for different clients within the subdivision.
On Friday, the law firm of Bridgford, Gleason and Artinian filed a suit against Pulte Home Corporation on behalf of a collection of homeowners regarding the use of copper pipes within the homes.
The lawsuit claims the contractors were aware of the short-term durability of copper pipes and went along with the construction anyway.
Like the separate August lawsuit against Standard Pacific Homes, the homeowners are seeking reparations for any damage caused by the copper pipes leaking, any additional economic loss from damages and attorneys’ fees.
Pulte built about 75 homes in Talega, according to the lawsuit. More than 3,000 homes make up the subdivision.
Pulte Homes will have to respond to the lawsuit once it is served to the company.
