Product details

"A narrative context for the myriad of issues. It is a powerful asset to this book that the author has included such extensive and detailed forms." -- Steven M. Richman, Esq., Duane Morris, LLP, New Jersey Lawyer Magazine

This extraordinary volume is the definitive work in the field of New Jersey consumer fraud and is worth its weight in gold as a reference book. Since the Consumer Fraud Act is one of only two areas of law that allows for treble damages, a single consumer fraud case could well be worth the price of the product.

Completely reorganized, updated, and indexed, this annual edition of New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act & Forms continues to provide comprehensive analysis about prosecuting and defending against consumer fraud claims in New Jersey.

This book seeks (1) to analyze the interplay between the CFA, the Administrative Rules pertaining thereto, the New Jersey Court Rules and the case law interpreting these subjects; and (2) to provide sample forms for use when handling CFA claims.

The CD accompanying this book includes dozens of forms for use by those prosecuting and defending claims. Quick reference charts on the CD (Appendices A-D) dissect the text of the CFA and the Administrative Rules:

A numerical chart of the CFA subsections provides practitioners with a quick answer to what topics are covered by which subsections;

•  A numerical chart of the Administrative Rules provides practitioners with a quick reference to which topics are covered by which subsections;
•  An alphabetical chart of the topics covered by the CFA and Administrative Rules enables practitioners to quickly determine if certain goods or services are regulated; and
•  An alphabetical chart of per se violations under the CFA and Administrative Rules provides a quick guide to which violations are enforceable by private litigants.

The CD also contains the CFA’s text.
