Ninth Circuit Rules no “good faith” defense to per se violations of WA CPA

November 18, 2022

On Thursday November 17th, the Ninth Circuit ruled that there is no “good faith” defense to per se violation of Washington’s Consumer Protection Act. Per se violations occur when a company violates one law and the Washington Legislature declares that it also violates the Consumer Protection Act. These could be laws that regulate debt collectors or insurance companies.

Terrell Marshall Law Group filed an amicus brief on behalf of the Northwest Consumer Law Center. Our attorneys are proud to have contributed to this decision.
