Moore v. Stanley Black & Decker, Inc.

Posted: 09/21/2018  browse the case archive
On September 21, 2018, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling party Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (“Stanley”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Moore had alleged that Stanley sold tool bags with vinyl/PVC components containing the phthalate di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate ("DEHP") in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings. 
As part of the settlement, Stanley agreed not to sell any tool bags with vinyl/PVC components in California after October 1, 2018, unless the bags contain less than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies or have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $23,500, 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.
