Product details

Florida is a rich jurisdiction to explore consumer protection law. Not only does the state have a robust travel and tourism industry—inclusive of amusement parks of worldwide appeal—but it also has a dedicated set of consumer protection laws such as the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act ("FDUTPA") that is patterned after federal consumer protection law and intensely litigated in state and federal courts around Florida. This book thus aims to assist readers of every background to navigate one of the nation's most complex bodies of consumer law.

This book was conceived and designed chiefly to provide practitioners, consumers, businesses, and students of consumer protection law with an easy-to-navigate treatise detailing what Florida law is and how it has been interpreted and applied in a broad variety of commercial settings, from cemetery and funeral proprietors to debt collectors to automobile sales and repair shops to mortgage brokers. The statutes, regulations, and case law that comprise Florida consumer law in these and other areas of state trade and commerce is set out across more than 20 chapters.
