DiPirro v. Gare, Inc., et al.

Posted: 04/18/2000  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro and Gare, Inc. entered into a settlement agreement on April 18, 2000 which resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that Gare sold glazes, ceramic paints, and coatings containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement agreement, Gare agreed to place Proposition 65 health hazard warnings on the covered products, including products that were already in the stream of commerce at the time the agreement was reached.

The settlement required payments of $12,600, to be divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and the remainder to whistleblower DiPirro.
