Judge to decide whether Vt. man was price gouging
A judge is deciding whether a Williston man was price gouging while selling medical masks during the coronavirus pandemic.
The state says Shelley Palmer was selling masks at a 500% markup and falsely claimed they were N95s.
Palmer says he was just turning a profit and didn't lie to anyone.
This is a civil case.
The judge could order Palmer to stop selling the masks altogether.
