A trial - six months in the making - involving hundreds of homeowners, has finally launched against the building materials company James Hardie. The class action lawsuit alleges James Hardie knew its home cladding was leaky, causing mould and rot, and continued to sell it for some years until its withdrawal in 2005. RNZ reporter Jordan Bond has been at the High Court in Auckland this morning and speaks to Max Towle.
