The Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) is a California law that protects consumers from deceptive advertising or unfair business practices. The CLRA bars 24 specific acts and practices such as:
- Passing off goods or services as those of another.
- Using deceptive representations or designations of geographic origin in connection with goods or services.
- Representing that goods are original or new if they have deteriorated unreasonably or are altered, reconditioned, reclaimed, used, or secondhand.
- Disparaging the goods, services, or business of another by false or misleading representation of fact.
- Advertising goods or services with intent not to sell them as advertised.
- Advertising furniture without clearly indicating that it is unassembled if that is the case.
- Representing that a part, replacement, or repair service is needed when it is not.
- Inserting an unconscionable provision in the contract.
