§

2465. Antitrust remedies

(a) Any person

who sustains damages or injury as a result of any violation of State antitrust

laws, including section 2453 of this title, may sue and recover from the

violator the amount of his or her damages, or the consideration or the value of

the consideration given by the aggrieved person, reasonable attorney's fees and

exemplary damages, not exceeding three times the value of the consideration

given or damages sustained by the aggrieved person.

(b) In any

action for damages or injury sustained as a result of any violation of State

antitrust laws, pursuant to section 2453 of this title, the fact that the

State, any public agency, political subdivision or any other person has not

dealt directly with a defendant shall not bar or otherwise limit recovery. The

Court shall take all necessary steps to avoid duplicate liability, including

the transfer or consolidation of all related actions. (Added 1999, No. 65 (Adj.

Sess.), § 3.)
