IDAHO COMPETITION ACT
48-113. Private causes of action. (1) Any person injured directly or threatened with direct injury by reason of anything prohibited by this chapter, may bring an action for injunctive relief, damages, and, as determined by the court, reasonable costs and attorney’s fees. The court shall exclude from the amount of monetary relief awarded to a plaintiff under this section any amount which duplicates amounts allocable to any other actual or potential plaintiff including, without limitation, potential claims by the attorney general on behalf of indirect purchasers for the same conduct or injury.
(2) If the district court finds that the violation at issue constituted a per se violation of section 48-104, Idaho Code, or an intentional violation of section 48-105, Idaho Code, it shall increase the recovery to an amount not in excess of three (3) times the damages sustained.
