By:  Offer Korin – KATZ & KORIN, PC In days of old, document preservation meant banker boxes and filing cabinets gathering dust in warehouses, awaiting eager young lawyers to comb through them in search of that one document upon which the case would turn.  In modern days, the young associate sits in front of a computer searching for the infamous “smoking gun.”  While electronically stored information (“ESI”) may not collect dust, its preservation is critical to the pursuit of justice in a courtroom.

The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has recently increased its enforcement activity nationwide regarding advertising directed to consumers.  Although the observations here are derived from the automotive retail sphere, they apply to any advertising of consumer goods.  In particular, ads offering consumer financing or consumer leasing fall into categories more likely than ever to receive intense FTC scrutiny.  But the scrutiny is not limited to those intensely regulated areas alone – any advertising claim that might be subject to some sort of qualification or explanation can violate FTC regulation governing disclaimers and explanations.  The technique – used by many ad agencies – of relegating required disclosures, explanations, and disclaimers to the […]
