Defense of retailer in claim for $13 million damages for lead paint ingestion

Major retailer of children's toys

Successfully defended a major retailer in a case involving lead paint on a child's toy from China. The case was complicated by the fact that the child had ingested paint from the toy and also had major pre-existing health conditions. By working with a lab and other experts we were able verify the toy met lead paint standards set by the Consumer Products Safety Commission and successfully tendered the claim to the supplier. The supplier made a settlement, relieving the client of responsibility.
