Arkansas Court Orders Texas Credit Repair Company to Comply with Investigative Demand

On January 30, 2015, the Arkansas Attorney General announced that Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza granted its petition to enforce a civil investigative demand against a Texas credit repair company, related to its investigation into whether the company’s representations, advertising, and pricing structures violated the Arkansas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, Ark. Code Ann. § 4-88-101 et seq. The company purportedly advertised that it could offer quick repair to consumers with poor credit in exchange for advance payment. As relief, Judge Piazza enjoined the company from operating in the State of Arkansas until it complied with the Attorney General’s demand.
