Mattel sued to pay for lead testing

In Brief | COURTS

August 21, 2007|From Times wire services

A lawyer filed a suit against Mattel Inc. because of recent recalls of toys made in China that might have contained excessive amounts of lead paint, and he is seeking class-action status.

Jeffrey Killino said the suit filed in Los Angeles was aimed at forcing the El Segundo-based toy maker to pay for the testing of children who might have gotten lead poisoning from the toys.

Mattel declined to comment on the case.
