Fla. AG settles with two law book publishers

“Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced a settlement on Tuesday with two law book publishers to resolve allegations that consumers received publications they did not intend to order. West Publishing Corporation and Thomson Reuters Tax Accounting Inc. allegedly placed customers into automatic subscription renewals and automated shipment plans for their publications without adequate disclosures. Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act requires that consumers be told clearly about the terms of automatic subscription renewals and automatic product shipments and agree to the terms for such plans to be lawful.” (via Legal Newsline)
