In the Matter of the Notice of Hearing for Unlicensed Acitvity of, Best Buy Stores LP

Department of Consumer Affairs Voluntarily Withdraws Violation Against Best Buy


The New York City Department of Consumer Affairs ("DCA") charged Best Buy with violating that section of the NYC Administrative Code requiring a business to maintain a home improvement license when installing home theaters (i.e. flat screen TV's) into individuals' homes. After a hearing was held, we submitted a post-hearing memorandum arguing that the violation was unfounded because, among other reasons, we discovered a DCA Office of General Counsel opinion that a license is not required for installing stereo and video equipment. Upon reviewing the memorandum, the violation was voluntarily withdrawn.
