"13. The residence of each Named Plaintiff was rendered uninhabitable following Hurricanes Katrina and/or Rita, leaving each Named Plaintiff homeless and in need of housing assistance.
14. FEMA contracted with R-Vision to purchase thousands of the housing units, primarily travel trailers, for provision to the Named Plaintiffs as temporary housing.
15. On information and belief, R-Vision expedited production of these housing units, and, on information and belief, resorted to using substandard materials and/or employing irregular practices during the manufacturing process, all of which resulted in the housing units occupied by each Named Plaintiff containing higher than normal levels of formaldehyde.
16. On information and belief, the housing unit of each Named Plaintiff, including those units which were manufactured prior to the hurricanes and those later manufactured and purchased by FEMA, deviated from Government specifications pertaining to the safety of the unit as a residence.
17. Named Plaintiffs submit that each and all of the housing units which are at issue herein, both those which were manufactured prior to the hurricanes and those later manufactured and purchased by FEMA, did not conform to any Government-imposed specifications which addressed the design and/or construction of the housing units pertinent to formaldehyde levels."
