New Jersey: "Court ruling makes it easier to sue merchants"

"Consumer advocates are hailing a Supreme Court ruling that allows individuals who believe they have been cheated by a merchant to file a lawsuit under the state Consumer Fraud Act without first requesting a refund or giving the merchant an opportunity to make amends." Bruce Greenberg, who "filed a friend of the court brief in the case on behalf of the Consumers League of New Jersey", said that in the absence of such a legal interpretation merchants would attempt to "buy off" discontented customers. You know, buy them off by giving them satisfaction before they had a chance to sue.

Do you ever find yourself wondering who "consumer advocates" actually represent?
