Moore v. Oenophilia II, LLC

Posted: 11/17/2011  browse the case archive

On November 17, 2011, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling defendant Oenophilia II, LLC ("Oenophilia") entered into an out-of-court Settlement Agreement, which resolved Moore's allegations that Oenophilia sold coverings for journals 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 settlement, Oenophilia agreed not to sell any coverings for journals in California after November 15, 2011, unless the coverings contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $20,000, 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.
