Class Action Suits Filed Against Importer of Children's Toys

Suits have been filed in California and Pennsylvania against Mattel, Inc., the importer of Chinese-made toys that have been recalled recently due to lead paint and small magnets that might be swallowed.  The class action filings seek to set up a medical-monitoring fund to pay for testing of children who may have been exposed to lead poisoning from the defective toys.  See Gina Passarella's story for The Legal Intelligencer.
