Unfair and Deceptive Practices in Consumer Protection Law

The purpose of federal and state consumer protection statutes are to prevent and punish unfair and deceptive practices by businesses on consumers.  The business is liable if the conduct is either "unfair" or "deceptive."  A related concept is "unconscionability" which voids a contract where it is so unfair that no reasonable person would accept the terms and no honest person would be comfortable offering them.  Another concept is the implied duty of good faith in the performance of a contract: a party must perform in such a manner as to give the other party the benefit of the promised performance.
