Every year about this time, the Attorney General posts and summarizes all of the Proposition 65 settlements from the preceding year, providing information about which settlements require reformulation of products, which require warnings, which require both, and, most importantly the dollar amounts. This year's 104 page report is here, and the summary is here. And since 2009, Cal Biz Lit has been digging into the AG's report, providing its own analysis (and to cut to the chase, this year's analysis is after the jump of this blog post).
There is much to blog about here, but so as not to bury the lede, let's start with a chart showing, for all bounty hunters settling more than one matter, the highest settlement, the lowest settlement, the average and the number of settlements. (Note that for attorneys/law firms representing more than one client, we have itemized by bounty hunter and totalled for the attorneys/law firms. Those law firm totals are highlighted in yellow. And also note the chart will pop out if you click it, becoming much easier to read.)
More information -- and another complicated chart -- after the jump.
