The District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act is intended to assure that there is a remedy for any and all improper trade practices and deter them from continuing to take place. The District of Columbia seeks to promote effective enforcement of fair business practices throughout the community and to educate consumers to demand high standards and to seek redress of grievances. The District of Columbia law states that it is encouraging its citizens, or individuals who do business in the District of Columbia, to demand high standards, and if they do not get it, to seek a remedy under the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act. Moreover, the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act states that it is to be construed "liberally" to promote the purposes of the Act.
