Consumer Affairs, Supreme Court takes away FTC's ability to provide restitution to defrauded consumers

"Ira Rheingold, executive director of the National Association of Consumer Advocates, expressed his dismay at the Supreme Court’s decision. 

'We are very disappointed in the Supreme Court Ruling taking away an extremely important tool that the FTC has successfully used to hold wrongdoers accountable and provide redress to harmed consumers,' he told ConsumerAffairs. 'We would hope that both Congress acts swiftly power to restore this authority to the FTC, and that the FTC aggressively uses other parts of its authority to sanction bad actors and provide greater protection to consumers.'"
