Texas AG files lawsuit against three businesses for price gouging during Harvey
Attorney General Ken Paxton filed lawsuits Tuesday against three Texas business accusing them of unlawful price gouging.
According to Paxton, the three businesses were gouging their prices while consumers were in need of fuel, shelter and other essentials as a result of Hurricane Harvey.
“It’s unconscionable that any business would take advantage of Texans at their most vulnerable – those who are displaced from their homes, have limited resources, and are in desperate need of fuel, shelter and the basic necessities of life,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Texas has tough price gouging laws, and my office will continue to aggressively investigate and prosecute cases arising from Hurricane Harvey.”
