Pet Dealers Association of New Jersey, Inc. v. Division of Consumer Affairs, Dept. of Law and Public Safety, Sate of New Jersey
New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division
373 A.2d 688 (1977)
Pet Dealers Association of New Jersey, Inc. (Pet Dealers) (plaintiff) provided pet-adoption services. Under the Consumer Fraud Act, the New Jersey Attorney General had the power to regulate pet adoptions. The Attorney General enacted pet-adoption regulations that provided remedies greater than the remedies available under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Pet Dealers sued New Jersey’s Division of Consumer Affairs (defendant), arguing the Attorney General’s regulations conflicted with the UCC. Pet Dealers claimed that, because the regulations provided additional remedies not available under the UCC, the regulations conflicted with the UCC and were invalid. The trial court rejected the argument, and Pet Dealers appealed.
