Posted: 01/31/2016  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case Moorberg v. Turtle Beach Corporation, et al. executed a Consent Judgment on January 31, 2016.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Mark Moorberg alleged that Turtle Beach Corporation and Voyetra Turtle Beach, Inc. (collectively, “Defendants”) sold headsets with vinyl/PVC components containing the phthalate chemical di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (“DEHP”) in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  

As part of the agreement, Defendants agreed not to sell any headsets with vinyl/PVC components in California after the Santa Clara County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the headsets contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of $28,500, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Moorberg and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
