SECTION 645
Penalties
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 30-B
§ 645. Penalties. Each day a person, firm or corporation violates any
provision of this article shall constitute a single violation. Whenever
there shall be a violation 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 by a special proceeding
to issue an injunction, and upon notice to the defendant of not less
than five days, to enjoin and restrain the continuance of such
violations. If it shall appear to 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. Whenever the court shall determine that a
violation of this article has occurred, the court may impose a civil
penalty of not more than one hundred dollars for the first violation and
two hundred dollars for each violation thereafter, but in no event shall
the total penalty therefor exceed one thousand dollars. In connection
with any such application, the attorney general is authorized to take
proof and make a determination of the relevant facts and to issue
subpoenas in accordance with the civil practice law and rules.
