Posted: 08/29/2016  browse the case archive

The parties involved in the case Moore v. Maverick Apparel LLC executed a Consent Judgment on August 29, 2016.  In this matter, citizen enforcer John Moore alleged that Maverick Apparel LLC (“Maverick Apparel”) sold vinyl/PVC jackets 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, Maverick Apparel agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC jackets in California after the San Francisco County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the jackets contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP in any accessible component when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $34,500, 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.
