Unfair Trade Practices Act Attorneys
The Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act (CUTPA) "allows the Commissioner of Consumer Protection to legally pursue persons or businesses who have used unfair or deceptive trade practices with consumers," in the words of the Department of Consumer Protection of the State of Connecticut.
A core tenet of this law is found in Section 42-110b: "No person shall engage in unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of any trade or commerce." Examples of unfair methods, acts and practices that have emerged through past cases have included:
- Sale of consumer goods at an unconscionable purchase price to a consumer having unequal bargaining power
- Refusal to sell and install goods at price originally quoted, causing "ascertainable loss" to the consumer
- Representing that work will be performed by an expert subcontractor while knowing that the work will be performed by a different subcontractor not of the same quality
- Failing to disclose to a customer that the customer will be required to pay undisclosed or additional fees
This state law awards for actual damages, monetary penalties and attorney's fees.
