Violations and penalties
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 34-A
§ 716. Violations and penalties. Whenever there shall be a violation
of this section, 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 such violations; and if it shall appear to the
satisfaction of the court or justice that the defendant has, in fact,
violated this section, 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 section eighty-three hundred three,
subdivision six of the civil practice law and rules, and direct
restitution. In connection with any such proposed 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.
