ABSTRACT
The FTC has at its disposal a powerful, though relatively unknown remedy, injunctive relief. This paper traces the legislative and judicial history of the FTC's injunctive powers, which reached their present scope in a 1973 amendment to the FTC Act. While judicial precedent is not entirely settled, a pattern is emerging, indicating the types of cases in which the FTC Will seek injunctive relief.
