Accused of Price Gouging During Hurricane Harvey?
Have you or your company been accused of price gouging under §17.46(b) of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act? The Texas Attorney General defines price gouging as
1. Selling or leasing fuel, food, medicine or another necessity at an exorbitant or excessive price; or
2. Demanding an exorbitant or excessive price in connection with the sale or lease of fuel, food, medicine or another necessity.
If you are under investigation, you will receive a subpoena or preservation of evidence letter from the Attorney General requesting you keep certain records related to the suspected price gouging incident. There are actions you can take to defend against these allegations, but you need to hire a defense lawyer who understands the complexities of Texas’ price gouging laws.
