Regulatory Resolution

January 30, 2017

Dave McComb resolved  a claim against a client by the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”). The FAA asserted that the client had violated the FAA Hazardous Materials regulations by shipping  a cigarette lighter and matches along with some other items to a vacation destination.  The lighter leaked in transit and the carrier notified the FAA that there was no declaration for hazardous materials accompanying the shipment. The FAA’s initial proposed penalty was a whopping $50,000, and included several claimed violations of the HazMat regulations. In negotiations with the FAA, Dave was able to point out several mitigating circumstances and get the penalty reduced by 90%.
