48-909. Civil remedy. Any consumer injured by a violation of this chapter may bring a civil action to enforce this chapter and recover costs and disbursements, including reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in the civil action. However, the provisions of this section do not include recovery of attorney’s fees previously incurred in the course of informal dispute resolution. In addition to the remedies provided herein, the attorney general may, when in the public interest, bring an action pursuant to the Idaho consumer protection act, chapter 6, title 48, Idaho Code, against any manufacturer for violation of this chapter. For purposes of such action, violations of this chapter shall be deemed to be violations of Idaho’s consumer protection act. In any such action, the attorney general and district court shall have the same authority as is granted the attorney general and district court under the Idaho consumer protection act.
