Posted: 07/12/2002  browse the case archive

A Consent Judgment in the case DiPirro v. Intervet Inc., et al. , heard in the San Francisco County Superior Court, was entered on July 17, 2002. The Consent Judgment resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that the defendant Intervet Inc. sold agricultural products, such as Taktic Emulsifiable, containing amitraz in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Intervert agreed not to sell any agricultural products in California unless the products contain Proposition 65 warning labels as prescribed in the Consent Judgment.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $21,700, 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.
