Posted: 02/15/2019  browse the case archive
The parties involved in the case Moore v. Genuine Parts Company, et al. executed a Consent Judgment on February 15, 2019.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that Balkamp Inc. (“Balkamp”), Genuine Parts Company  (“Genuine Parts”), and Ullman Devices Corporation (“Ullman”) (collectively, “Defendants”) sold tool pouches containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  
As part of the agreement, Defendants agreed not to sell any tool pouches in California after the Marin County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the tool pouches are virtually lead free when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided. 
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $40,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Moore and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
