The volume of actions from the very aggressive State of Connecticut has slowed down in recent years but here is the latest action.
Capital Home Center and Sergio Rodriguez were hit with a cease and desist by the State for action under Connecticut General Statutes contained in Part II of Chapter 669 of the Connecticut General Statutes, “Debt Adjusters and Debt Negotiation.”
The State says, “on January 10, 2018, the Commissioner, acting pursuant to Sections 36a-52(b), 36a-50(c) and 36a-671a(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes, and Sections 36a-52(a) and 36a-50(a)(1) of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended by Public Act 17-233, issued a Temporary Order to Cease and Desist, Order to Make Restitution (“Order to Make Restitution”), Notice of Intent to Issue Order to Cease and Desist, Notice of Intent to Impose Civil Penalty and Notice of Right to Hearing (collectively “Order and Notice”) against Respondents.”
Because, “Respondents failed to request a hearing within the prescribed time period, present evidence, rebuttal evidence and argument on all issues of fact and law to be considered by the Commissioner they were hit with a $100,000 civil penalty. – Source
And again the lesson to be learned here is Connecticut is not a state to be messed with.
