faulty and unregulated over-the-counter hearing devices. The Iowa Attorney General’s Office has received consumer complaints about over-the-counter medical hearing devices following the relaxation of rules and restrictions on the sales of hearing aids in 2016. Companies selling these over-the-counter hearing devices promise an inexpensive alternative to a medically approved hearing aid. In reality, these devices are often actually Personal Sound Amplification Products, not FDA-approved hearing ... devices, and leave consumer with little more than a sound amplifier. In addition to offering a lower price tag, companies selling these over-the-counter devices often market their products with an “FDA Registration Certificate,” implying the device was reviewed and approved by the FDA. According to the FDA, there are no approved over-the-counter hearing devices on the market. Unlike traditional healthcare professionals that prescribe and fit medically approved hearing aids, companies may offer ... , direct-to-consumer hearing aids are not regulated and because of this, may work poorly or not at all and could be harmful. Research the seller with the Better Business Bureau. Be skeptical of online reviews and endorsements. Research the company’s purchasing policies related to returns and refunds carefully. Always remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. File a Complaint: If you have a similar report please contact the Iowa Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at consumer@ag.iowa.gov or 515-281-5926 (in Des Moines area) or 888-777-4590 (outside the metro area); or through our online complaint form.

Updated December 1, 2014 Yes, sometimes -- but only if expressly authorized by statute. The work of governmental bodies is broad and varied. Sometimes, they conduct hearings – and that may bring up “open meetings” questions. When a quorum of a governmental body holds a hearing, the body is “meeting” under Iowa’s Open Meetings Law (Iowa Code ch. 21). How does the Open Meetings Law apply to hearings? Can a governmental body conduct a hearing in closed session? What about ... deliberations? Can a governmental body decide a case behind closed doors? Like all meetings, hearings can be conducted in closed session only when expressly authorized by statute. Here are some closed-session guidelines to apply when a governmental body is conducting a hearing or conducting deliberations on the outcome of a hearing: ● Iowa Code Ch. 21 provides only limited authority to close a hearing: Chapter 21 itself authorizes a closed session only for hearings to suspend or expel a student, unless ... an open session is requested by the student, or a parent, or guardian. See Iowa Code sec. 21.5(1)(e). Chapter 21 authorizes a closed session otherwise only to discuss a decision to be rendered in a contested case, a type of hearing conducted only by state agencies. See Iowa Code sec. 17A.2(5), 21.5(1)(f). ● Check other statutes for specific authority to close a hearing: Other statutes may allow a governmental body to close a hearing. For example, most professional licensing boards can hold disciplinary

Bruce Douglas, the General Manager of Adaptive Marketing, a subsidiary of Vertrue, Inc., testified in a Polk County District Court hearing on Tuesday that after Polk County District Judge Robert A.

The March ruling found Vertrue and its two subsidiaries, Adaptive Marketing and Idaptive Marketing, liable ... breakage, nationwide. “This is great news for consumers,” said Attorney General Tom Miller. “The court got it right in condemning these practices, as they were cheating hundreds of thousands of consumers in Iowa, and many millions nationwide.” In Tuesday’s hearing the company official also testified that the operation had stopped the online practice of selling two “bundled” memberships with one click of the mouse, but then requiring consumers to make two different calls ... had.

Brouse appealed, and in April the Iowa Court of Appeals reversed the verdict. A Class C felony carries a maximum ten-year sentence. The judge set a sentencing hearing for March 23. ###
