Posted: 12/21/2001  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case DiPirro v. Target Corporation, The Coleman Company, et al., executed a Consent Judgment on December 21, 2001. This enforcement action resolved citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's allegations that the defendant The Coleman Company ("Coleman") sold adhesives and other adhesive repair products containing the solvent toluene in the State of California, without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, Coleman agreed not to sell any of the adhesives or adhesive repair products identified in Exhibit A in the Settlement Agreement in California after March 14, 2002, unless the adhesive products have Proposition 65 warnings provided. The settlement sum does not include additional fees incurred should the office of the Attorney General require further information or need to clarify some aspect of the Consent Judgment.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $15,000, 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.
