Matt Sawchak, a founder of this blog, has published two law review articles on unfair and deceptive trade practices. These articles analyze some of the thorniest issues that arise in litigation under N.C. Gen. Stat. § 75-1.1. The articles go on to explain how North Carolina law in this area fits into broader patterns nationwide. Here are citations and links to those articles:
