California AG Sues For Formaldehyde In Baby Furniture

More on the story can be found here.

Although focused on intellectual property law issues, Womble Carlyle's Furniture Law Blog notes the significant increase in environmental issues in the furniture industry, ranging from health-based issues, such as with the lawsuit in California, to industry initiatives to go "green." We will continue to follow such issues and specifically track the "green" movement in both trademark and patent law as it relates to the furniture and home furnishings industry.
