Consumer Court Wins Spur Surge In NJ Contract Class Actions

Paul Halasz was quoted in an article, "Consumer Court Wins Spur Surge In NJ Contract Class Actions," in Law360. The article is about how a recent string of victories for class action plaintiffs accusing businesses of violation of a New Jersey consumer protection law has left companies facing an explosion of similar suits. Many defense attorneys feel that the statute is ambiguous and exposes businesses to unfair readings of e-commerce terms and other contract language. "What constitutes a 'clearly established legal right' really is subject to a lot of different interpretations," said Halasz, noting the law effectively requires an analysis of every aspect of a company's terms, conditions and disclosures.
