Updated: Aug 24, 2022
This isn't the first time that council members have considered action after hearing complaints about D.R. Horton homes.
Four lawsuits were filed in the 15th Judicial District in Lafayette Parish from 2014 to 2021. The most recent, which 10 Louisiana attorneys hope will become a class action lawsuit, was filed March 8 in the 19th JDC in East Baton Rouge Parish.
“My position with anything Youngsville is that it needs to be synonymous with quality, regardless of the issue at hand...It gives me no pleasure when I see a homeowner in Youngsville complaining about the quality of their largest investment.” -Ken Ritter, Youngsville Mayor
