Posted: 05/31/2013  browse the case archive

The Honorable Judge William J. Monahan of the Santa Clara County Superior Court issued a Default Judgment in the enforcement action Brimer v. Bam Brokerage, Inc. on May 31, 2013.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Russell Brimer alleged that the defendant Bam Brokerage, Inc. (“Bam Brokerage”) sold folding chairs in travel bags containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings. 

As part of the settlement, the judge permanently enjoined Bam Brokerage from selling any folding chairs in travel bags containing lead in California after May 31, 2013, unless Bam Brokerage provides clear and reasonable health hazard warnings regarding the risks of reproductive harm or birth defects caused by lead exposures.  

The Default Judgment requires settlement payments of $43,050.82, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Brimer and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
