Start Preamble

On September 19, 2016, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Stipulation and Settlement Agreement with the United States District Court for the Central District of California in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Goldenvale, Inc., Civil Action No. 5:16-CV-443.

The United States filed this lawsuit under the Clean Air Act. The United States' complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for the importation and sale of highway motorcycles and recreational vehicles in violation of certification and labeling requirements of the Clean Air Act and its regulations. The settlement agreement requires the defendant to pay a civil penalty of $150,000 (which amount was based on an assessment of ability to pay) and prohibits the defendant from importing any vehicles unless they first enter into a compliance plan with the Environmental Protection Agency.
