HB18-1028 - Attorney General Deceptive Practice Court Order

Concerning clarification of the standard required for applications for a court order to require compliance with investigations of deceptive trade practices.

Under current law, if a person does not cooperate with an investigation by the attorney general or a district attorney regarding a potential deceptive trade practice, the attorney general or district attorney may seek a court order requiring compliance with the investigation. The application for a court order must state why the order is necessary to terminate or prevent a deceptive trade practice.

The bill would allow a judge to issue a court order if compliance with an investigation is necessary to investigate a deceptive trade practice.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
