ON DEMAND: Consumer Protection and Antitrust Enforcement Priorities During a Pandemic

Date(s):
Description:
Credit: 0 Credit Hours
 
Run Time: 80 Minutes
 
**This is a previously recorded program, originally recorded on November 4, 2020. 
 
This program will focus on the changes in DC and federal law and enforcement priorities as they relate to the protection of consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Speakers will address the District's current laws and the recent DC pandemic-specific laws and Mayoral Orders to protect consumers as well as how practitioners in general civil litigation, consumer protection, and pro-bono spheres can expect the courts to construe legal theories and arguments under these new laws.
 
We will focus on consumer protection as it relates to aiding consumers, homeowners, renters, property managers, and business owners in the District. We will also discuss the ways in which attorneys at OAG have worked to protect consumers, preserve workers' rights and affordable housing during the pandemic; how the District's Phase I and II reopening have affected business owners; and how the District has ensured compliance with its phased re-openings.
 
Finally, we will have an antitrust update as to emerging antitrust enforcement priorities as they intersect with consumer law. We will discuss the relatively new and ongoing consumer and government lawsuits against Facebook, Google, Apple, and Amazon; specifically, the legal theories in the government and consumer cases and address whether consumers, competitors and clients have litigation recourse against the platform monopolies.
