DiPirro v. Custom Accessories, Inc., et al.

Posted: 12/10/1999  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro and settling party Custom Accessories, Inc. ("Custom Accessories") entered into an out-of-court Settlement Agreement on December 10, 1999, resolving DiPirro's allegations that Custom Accessories distributes adhesive products that contain toluene and soldering iron, and solders that contain the heavy metal lead, in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Custom Accessories agreed not to sell any of the specific adhesive or soldering products identified in Exhibit A to the Settlement Agreement after December 7, 1999, unless the products have Proposition 65 warnings provided pursuant to subsections 1.1 through 1.3.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $26,700, to be divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower DiPirro and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
