Posted: 06/18/2018  browse the case archive
The parties involved in the case Englander v. Polaris Industries Inc. executed a Consent Judgment on June 18, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Peter Englander alleged that Polaris Industries Inc. (“Polaris”) sold beverageware with exterior designs containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  
As part of the agreement, Polaris agreed not to sell any beverageware with exterior designs in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the designs are virtually free of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR the products have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $39,800, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Englander and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
