Moore v. New View Gifts & Accessories, Ltd.

Posted: 04/25/2018  browse the case archive

On April 25, 2018, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling party New View Gifts & Accessories, Ltd. (“New View”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Moore had alleged that New View sold mugs with exterior designs containing the heavy metal lead in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.

As part of the settlement, New View agreed not to sell any mugs with exterior designs in California after April 30, 2018, unless the designs contain less than 90 parts per million of lead when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or have Proposition 65 warnings provided.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $20,500, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to citizen enforcer Moore and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
