  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 30, 2017 - Event Summary:
    Typically, without regard to the actual harm suffered by a plaintiff, statutory damages are damages whose amount is set by law. While statutory damages give plaintiffs a procedural advantage, they have become a multiplier of liability for defendants. Class actions claiming statutory damages and brought under consumer protection statuses can result to persistent and troublesome threats for various businesses and can signify significant exposure to a huge range of cases. Consumer protection statutes can result to the prohibition of certain types of business conduct and enforcement of affirmative duties on the target businesses which frequently include disclosure requirements to consumers.
