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 Upon reviewing the memorandum, the violation was voluntarily withdrawn.
