Subchapter 001 : GENERAL PROVISIONS(Cite as: 9 V.S.A. § 2464c)
§ 2464c. Private cause of action
Any person who receives a telephone call in violation of subsection 2464a(b) of this title may bring an action in Superior Court for damages, injunctive relief, punitive damages in the case of a willful violation, and reasonable costs and attorney’s fees. The court may issue an award for the person’s actual damages or $500.00 for a first violation, or $1,000.00 for each subsequent violation, whichever is greater. In considering the amount of punitive damages, the court may consider, among other relevant factors, the extent to which a telephone solicitor maintained and complied with procedures designed to ensure compliance with the requirements of sections 2464a and 2464b of this title. This section shall not limit any other claims the person may have under applicable law. (Added 2001, No. 120 (Adj. Sess.), § 3; amended 2003, No. 89 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff.
