Posted: 07/23/2003  browse the case archive

A Consent Judgment in the DiPirro v. Olympia Group, Inc., et al. matter, heard in the Alameda County Superior Court, was entered on July 23, 2003. The Consent Judgment resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that the defendant Olympia Group, Inc. sold power tools containing lead (or lead compounds), crystalline silica, arsenic and/or chromium (hexavalent compounds) in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Olympia agreed not to knowingly sell in California products unless such products contain Health Hazard warning labels as prescribed in the Consent Judgment.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $10,000, 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.
