Lanai City is a census-designated place (CDP) on the island of Lanai, in Maui County, Hawaii, United States. The population was 3,164 at the 2000 census. Because of the island of Lanai's small population, Lanai City functions as the island's main commerce and business area. Many of the island's restaurants and shops can be found in the town square that surrounds Dole Park. In April 2009, Lanai City was named one of the top most endangered historic sites in the U.S. It is home to an intact plantation town, something not found on any of the other Hawaiian Islands, dating back to the early 1920s. This historic district is threatened by commercial development, which would involve the demolition of a number of historic buildings. Lanai City is served by Lanai Airport (LNY).

What is consumer protection law?

Consumer protection refers to the laws designed to aid retail consumers of goods and services that have been improperly manufactured, delivered, performed, handled, or described. Such laws provide the retail consumer with additional protections and remedies not generally provided to merchants and others who engage in business transactions, on the premise that the consumers do not enjoy a sufficient bargaining position with respect to the businessmen with whom they deal and therefore should not be strictly limited by the legal rules that govern recovery for damages among businessmen. The overarching goal is to protect individuals and the interest of the public in general from unfair and misleading activity in business and commerce (such as false advertising and deceptive trade practices) and scams perpetrated by criminals (such as identity theft and pyramid schemes) that harm a substantial number of consumers.
