SAN FRANCISCO – A consumer alleges the sellers of vinyl-covered products failed to warn of the products' purported health hazards.
Dennis Johnson filed a complaint on Dec. 28 in the San Francisco County Superior Court against Therapy Stores Inc. and Does 1-50 alleging violation of Proposition 65.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants sell certain vinyl-covered cocktail shaker and beverage coaster sets and do not warn consumers about the risks of exposure to Diisononyl phthalate and lead allegedly in the products.
The plaintiff holds Therapy Stores Inc. and Does 1-50 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to include the required health hazard warning on their products in violation of Proposition 65.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks for the court to assess civil penalties of $2,500 per day for every violation, attorneys' fees, costs of suit and further relief as may be just. He is represented by Josh Voorhees and Troy C. Bailey of Voorhees & Bailey LLP in Palo Alto.
