Connecticut Consumer Law

In Connecticut, the mini-FTC act is Conn. Gen. Stat. § 42-110. Under this legislation, plaintiffs have a cause of action when an individual engages in unfair methods of competition or unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of any trade and causes any ascertainable loss of property to the plaintiff. Such action must be brought within three years of the violation. The plaintiff can be awarded actual damages, injunctive relief, and punitive damages.  Plaintiffs can also sue on behalf of a class.
