Moore v. Staples, Inc.

Posted: 04/25/2017  browse the case archive

On April 25, 2017, citizen enforcer John Moore and settling party Staples, Inc. (“Staples”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement.  Moore had alleged that Staples sold a product 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, Staples agreed not to sell any of these products in California after April 25, 2017 without a Proposition 65 warning provided.

The Settlement Agreement requires settlement payments of $13,000, 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.
