Vinocur v. Boss Tech Products, Inc.

Posted: 09/26/2018  browse the case archive
On September 18, 2018, citizen enforcer Laurence Vinocur and settling party Boss Tech Products, Inc. (“Boss”) entered into an out-of-court settlement agreement. Vinocur had alleged that Boss sold vinyl USB cords and phone chargers 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, Boss agreed not to sell any vinyl USB cords and phone chargers in California after September 26, 2018, unless the cords 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 citizen enforcer Vinocur and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
