MIAMI (AP) - An attorney for homeowners who bought properties with tainted Chinese drywall says Florida's public insurance company has again reversed course, saying it will suspend policies for those individuals.
David Durkee says his clients have begun receiving notices informing them their coverage will be dropped by Citizens Property Insurance Corp., a state-backed insurer of last resort.
Citizens made the same move in 2009, but then reversed course after bad publicity over the decision. Calls to the company were not immediately returned Monday.
Thousands of homeowners nationwide bought houses built with the defective drywall.
