State attorneys general have comprehensive authority to protect consumers from misinformation, scams, and negligence. Attorneys general work with consumers, the business community, the private bar, and the federal government to ensure that consumers are treated legally and fairly in the marketplace.
In an effort to highlight the important role state attorneys general play in protecting consumers, The Center for State Enforcement of Antitrust and Consumer Protection Laws, in partnership with StateAG.org has created The State AG Consumer Protection Initiative: a website devoted exclusively to information on efforts by state attorneys general to protect consumers. The website features both a monthly report and a searchable database.
The Consumer Protection Report is a monthly compilation of state attorney general press releases on issues related to local and national consumer protection efforts including cases, investigations, consumer alerts and advocacy initiatives. Originally published by the National State Attorneys General Program at Columbia Law School, the Report makes no effort to prioritize, analyze or comment on the information presented in the press releases and their potential impact on consumers.
Through the websites searchable database, viewers can search all editions of the Consumer Protection Report using various search tools, including key word and drop-down menu searches.
If an office would like their consumer protection activity included in subsequent report, please contact us.
