§ 18.2-190.8

Civil relief; damages

Any electronic communication service provider aggrieved by a violation of this article may seek both injunctive and equitable relief and an award of damages including attorney’s fees and costs. In addition to any other remedy provided by law, the party aggrieved may recover an award of actual damages or $ 500, whichever is greater, for each unlawful electronic communications device involved in the action. In any case in which the court finds that the violation was committed for purposes of commercial advantage or financial gain, the award shall be increased by an amount not to exceed three times the actual damages sustained or $ 1,500 for each unlawful electronic communications device involved, whichever is greater.
