  • Three bills introduced by Nevada AG Aaron Ford were recently enacted that will amend the Nevada Deceptive Trade Practices Act (“DTPA”), the Nevada Unfair Trade Practices Act (“UTPA”), and charitable donation laws, effective October 1, 2021.
  • Assembly Bill 61 amends the DTPA by prohibiting price gouging during a declared state of emergency; enhancing civil penalties for conduct targeting minors, up to $12,500 per violation; and making robocalling and “unconscionable” conduct actionable under the DTPA, among other things.
  • Assembly Bill 47 amends the UTPA by requiring healthcare entities to report certain proposed transactions to the AG’s Office for review; prohibiting non-compete agreements for hourly employees; and imposing civil penalties for willful violations of the UTPA, among other things.
  • Senate Bill 62 strengthens charitable donation laws by, among other things, expanding the AG’s authority to bring lawsuits against scams that falsely claim to raise money for charitable causes.
