Multiple news agencies have reported that Home Depot has recently agreed to pay over $6.9 million to settle a lawsuit that was filed against the company in Southern California.
The reports show that according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the company was knowingly selling paints that violated the local regulations.
The reports show that the region’s laws allow paints to have 50 grams of volatile organic compounds and not one gram over that limit. However, the lawsuit was filed after it was noted that several stores were selling paint that violated that regulation by containing more volatile organic material in its contents.
The company is expected to pay over $1.1 million in fees due to the trial.
