A company that hawked gun-shaped lighters in its Times Square store got burned by an unfair $60,000 city fine, says a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court this week.
US Camera & Computers says the city’s Department of Consumer Affairs was “arbitrary and capricious” when it fined the store in 2011 for carrying the small, weapon-like butane lighters. City rules prohibit selling items that could be mistaken for actual weapons.
The store sent back the lighters once DCA issued them a violation — but wound up getting fined the maximum amount anyway.
