Lead Paint News: 2022 Lawsuits Conclude

News that the makers and insurers were wrong and they must pay into a fund to help remove old lead paint.

You remember that paint company that used children to sell lead paint? Oh yeah. Time to pay the piper.

The appeals are over and the judges find that the paint companies (now mostly Sherwin Williams) and their insurers must pay California to remove lead paint. Gottcha.

You can read the legal details here, but let’s just get to what’s most important. These paint company men, and they were all men, knowingly sold paint that is harmful and the effects are still with us today. It’s been known for 80 years!

Great idea: let’s use children to market it! Yeah, a coloring book for kids! Cool.
