Civil Remedies

Under the Business and Professions Code (Section 17200) and various provisions of the Public Utilities Code (e.g. Sections 2102 and 5259) the Enforcement Branch sometimes seeks injunctive relief from the courts to enjoin individuals and companies from further violations of the law. Also, in addition to or in lieu of criminal prosecution, local prosecutors may elect to civilly prosecute violations of the Public Utilities Code and other statutes as unfair, unlawful business practices under Section 17200 of the Business and Professions Code.
