Have you or your company been accused of price gouging under Fla. Stat. 501.160? You may have received a subpoena or preservation of evidence letter requesting you keep certain records because you or your business are under investigation by the Attorney General for price gouging.
Under Fla. Stat. 501.160, during declared State emergencies such as hurricanes and tropical storms, businesses cannot gouge consumers or charge an unconscionable amount for essential commodities such as lumber, gas, water, food, ice, and essential provisions. Likewise, hotels and motels cannot increase their prices so they are disproportionate to their normal prices. Significant criminal and civil penalties can result and fines of $10,000 and more can be imposed.
There are actions you can take to defend these actions, but you need to hire an Orlando criminal defense lawyer who understands the intricacies of Florida's price gouging laws.
