SECTION 327
Violations
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 20-A
§ 327. Violations. 1. Any person who shall violate any of the
provisions of this article shall be subject to a civil penalty not to
exceed one thousand dollars.

2. Upon any violation of the provisions of this article, an
application may be made by the attorney general in the name of the
people of the state of New York to a court or justice having
jurisdiction to issue an injunction and upon notice to the defendant of
not less than five days, to enjoin and restrain the continuance of the
violation. If it shall appear to the satisfaction of the court or
justice that the defendant has violated this section, an injunction may
be issued by the court or justice, enjoining and restraining any further
violation, without requiring proof that any person has, in fact, been
injured or damaged thereby. In any such proceeding, the court may make
allowances to the attorney general as provided in paragraph six of
subdivision (a) of section eight thousand three hundred three of the
civil practice law and rules, and direct restitution.

In connection with an application made under this section, the
attorney general is authorized to take proof and to make a determination
of the relevant facts and to issue subpoenas in accordance with the
civil practice law and rules.
