"Air Pollution: Home Depot To Pay $8 Million for Violations"

"The Home Depot chain agreed to pay $8 million for selling tens of thousands of gallons of paint, varnishes, sealants and other liquid building materials that violated regional air quality rules, the South Coast Air Quality Management District announced Thursday, April 4."

"The products were sold at 15 Home Depot stores within the air district’s jurisdiction, including outlets in Lake Elsinore, Moreno Valley and Rialto.

The settlement grew out of two civil lawsuits filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court by the air district, the Los Angeles city attorney and district attorney offices in Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties."
