DiPirro v. SIG Manufacturing Company, Inc., et al.

Posted: 04/02/2001  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations against the defendant SIG Manufacturing Company, Inc. ("SIG") were resolved on April 2, 2001, when the parties executed a Consent Judgment. DiPirro alleged that SIG sold adhesives and fuel containing the chemicals trichloethylene and nitromethane in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, SIG agreed not to sell in California any of the adhesives or fuel identified in Exhibit A in the Consent Judgment after April 15, 2001, unless the adhesives and fuel have Proposition 65 warnings provided.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $22,775, 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.
