SECTION 460-H
Enforcement
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 28-C
§ 460-h. Enforcement. Upon any violation of this article, an
application may be made by the attorney general in the name of the
people of the state to a court having jurisdiction to issue an
injunction, and upon notice to the respondent of not fewer 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, in fact, violated this article, an injunction may be
issued by such 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 eighty-three hundred three of the civil
practice law and rules, and direct restitution. Whenever the court shall
determine that a violation of this article has occurred, the court may
impose a civil penalty of not more than ten thousand dollars for each
violation.
