IT Law Alert September 16, 2014
A new California law is the first to ban such clauses in any contract for the sale or lease of consumer goods or services. The law states that such clauses are “contrary to public policy, and is void and unenforceable”. Violation of the law could result in civil penalties from $2,500 to $10,000. The law also provides consumers with a private right of action to sue for statutory violations.
The new law takes effect on January 1, 2015. See the text of the law here.
