AG addresses price gouging post storm

Nov 23, 2014

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has begun to take legal action against incidents of illegal pricing following the snow emergency in Western New York.

At least one business has received notice from Schneiderman because of price gouging. It is illegal to drastically raise prices for necessary goods and services after an emergency, and the Attorney General states that he will doggedly pursue anyone who attempts to capitalize on victims of the storm.
