27.0405 Restitution.

Print This

In a civil action initiated by the Director to collect civil penalties or to enjoin an unlawful act or practice, the court may grant restitution to a person who sustained damages as a result of the unlawful act and practice if the aggrieved consumer has filed a complaint with the Office of Consumer Protection prior to the initiation of the action. A person in whose favor restitution is ordered may not choose to accept restitution, but his acceptance and full performance of restitution bars recovery by him of other damages in a separate action for the same act or practice, against the person making restitution.
