Class-Action Status Awarded to Defective Stucco Cases

Defective Stucco Lawsuit

Preliminary class-action status has been granted by a judge in defective stucco case affecting homes in Sun City Hilton Head.

Judge J. Michael Baxley, who issued the order, stated  that defective stucco work was done on as many as 4,000 homes in Hilton Head. Judge Baxley issued the order in hopes of preventing similar cases from clogging the court system. There are currently 140 stucco cases now pending.

The state Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that the initial case filed by Anthony and Barbara Grazia could proceed as a class-action suit. This ruling overturned a previous lower court ruling.

Defendants in this class-action case include a plastering company, the community’s developer, a home builder, and an architect.

The class-action is not final. Under South Carolina law, the defendants have a chance to offer repairs, money, or some other solution to mend the problem.
