Sherwin-Williams and Con Agra went to court recently to argue that marketing lead paint boiled down to free speech! The companies’ were aware of the health effects and long term damage and they marketed Lead Paint until 1978 when the Government banned the product. Studies conducted between 2007 and 2010 found at least 50,000 children in 10 cities had elevated levels of lead in their system.

The U. S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal by these companies and kept them on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars to remove potentially dangerous lead paint from older homes in 10 California Counties. In seeking Supreme Court review the paint companies argued they were being penalized for promoting a product when its use was legal. The deciding factor in this case was the companies’ speech and not just the product. The companies’ promoted a product that was legal at the time when available research showed it was hazardous. This opened the door to potentially unbounded suits targeting manufacturers of products sold decades ago.

These are leaders in the paint industry who knew early in the 20th century that lead paint was poisonous and shouldn’t be distributed. The ruling determined the companies could be held responsible for lead paint in homes built before the 1978 ban but instead the ruling applies only to homes built before 1951 when companies stopped advertising the product.

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
