Start Preamble

On July 22, 2014, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in the lawsuit entitled United States of America v. OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. and Philips Electronics North America Corporation 3:14-cv-1621.

The Complaint in this matter, filed simultaneously with the Consent Decree, alleges that OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. (“OSRAM”) and Philips Electronics North America Corporation (“Philips”) are liable under Section 107(a)(3) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”) because they generated hazardous substances and arranged for the disposal of those substances at the Ottawa Lead Superfund Site (“Site”) in the Village of Ottawa, Putnam County, Ohio. The Consent Decree would require OSRAM and Philips to pay $450,000 and $120,000, respectively, in past costs for the removal action that took place at the Site from October 4, 2010 to January 6, 2011.
