DiPirro v. Indium Corporation of America, et al.

Posted: 06/22/1999  browse the case archive

On June 22, 1999, Michael DiPirro and Indium Corporation of America, entered into a settlement agreement which resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that Indium manufactured, distributed, or sold welding, brazing and soldering products containing lead and lead compounds in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

Pursuant to the terms of the parties' settlement, beginning on August 15, 1999, Indium agreed to implement and provide specific and prominent health hazard warnings for the products that it shipped to California for sale. In addition, Indium agreed to revise the "Health Hazard" section of its Material Safety Data Sheets to contain the Proposition 65 warning information required by settlement for the product labels.

The settlement requires settlement payments of $30,750 divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Michael DiPirro and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
