§ 11-52.2-6 Civil action. (1) A person who is injured under this chapter may bring a civil action in the superior court to enjoin further violations, or to seek up to one thousand dollars ($1,000) per violation, or actual damages, whichever is greater. The injured individuals may bring their cause of action as a class action. Nothing in this section prohibits the attorney general from bringing a class action suit under § 6-13.1-5.
(2) In an action under subsection (1) of this section, a
court may increase the damages up to three (3) times the damages allowed by
subsection (1) of this section if the defendant has engaged in a pattern and
practice of violating this chapter. The court may also award costs and
reasonable attorneys' fees to the prevailing party.
