What are the consequences if I don’t comply?
Lawsuits. Any person can file a Proposition 65
lawsuit, and there is an entire cottage industry of California plaintiffs’ attorneys who can and do. Both state and local government lawyers sometimes file lawsuits to enforce Proposition 65 as well. For 2013, in suits brought by members of the public, the average payment, not including defendant’s legal fees, is about $43,000. In suits brought by the Attorney General, the average payment is over $50,000, not including the defendant’s legal fees.
