DiPirro v. Wahl Clipper Corporation, et al.

Posted: 12/21/2002  browse the case archive

Citizen enforcer Michael DiPirro's suit against Wahl Clipper Corporation concluded on December 21, 2002, when a Consent Judgment was executed in DiPirro v. Wahl Clipper Corporation, resolving DiPirro's allegations that Wahl Clipper sold power tools whose customary use and application are likely to produce fumes, gases or dust containing lead, crystalline silica, arsenic and chromium in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement agreement, Wahl Clipper agreed to place Proposition 65 health hazard warnings on the covered products.

The Consent Judgment requires settlement payments of $11,500, 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.
