Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation v. Sprint Communications, et. al.
Mateel filed a lawsuit in the Superior Court of California for the County of San Francisco against approximately 100 members of EIA as co-defendants. Lan Kennedy-Davis represented Recoton Corporation, a named defendant in this action as in-house counsel. The lawsuit alleged that goods sold by the defendants failed to have adequate warnings with regard to potential exposure to lead in accordance with a California Health and Safety Code referred to as Proposition 65. In this case, a joint defense group was put together, which Lan and the general counsels for 4 other defendants led. The case was settled for a nuisance fee.
