NY Gen Bus L § 458-J (2012) What's This?
 
    §  458-j.  Enforcement  by  attorney general. In addition to the other
  remedies provided, whenever there shall be a violation of this  article,
  application  may  be  made  by  the  attorney general in the name of the
  people  of  the  state  of  New  York  to  a  court  or  justice  having
  jurisdiction  by  a  special proceeding to issue an injunction, and upon
  notice to the defendant of not  less  than  five  days,  to  enjoin  and
  restrain  the  continuance of such violations; and if it shall appear to
  the satisfaction of the court or justice  that  the  defendant  has,  in
  fact,  violated  this article, an injunction may be issued by such court
  or justice, enjoining and restraining  any  further  violation,  without
  requiring  proof  that  any person has, in fact, been injured or damaged
  thereby. In any such proceeding, the court may make  allowances  to  the
  attorney  general  as  provided  in  paragraph six of subdivision (a) of
  section eighty-three hundred three of the civil practice law and  rules,
  and  direct  restitution.  Whenever  the  court  shall  determine that a
  violation of this article has occurred, the court  may  impose  a  civil
  penalty  of  not  more  than one thousand dollars for each violation. In
  connection with any such proposed application, the attorney  general  is
  authorized  to take proof and make a determination of the relevant facts
  and to issue subpoenas in accordance with the  civil  practice  law  and
  rules.
