DiPirro v. TACC International Corporation, et al.

Posted: 04/22/1999  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro and settling party TACC International Corporation ("TACC") entered into an out-of-court Settlement Agreement on April 22, 1999, resolving DiPirro's allegations that TACC sold adhesive products that contain toluene in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, TACC agreed not to sell any adhesive products in California after May 30, 1999, unless the adhesives have Proposition 65 warnings provided. TACC shall also provide Interim Warning Materials for the products released into the stream of commerce before April 22, 1999.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $43,000, 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.
