Edward Davidson v. Seterus, Inc.

At issue in this appeal is whether mortgage servicers can be "debt collectors"
under California's Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (the Rosenthal Act; Civ.
Code,1 § 1788 et seq.). There is a split of authority among the many federal district
courts that have considered the issue, and there is a paucity of California authority
addressing the question.
In this case, t... More...

James R. Hagy, III v. Demers & Adams; David J. Demers Southern District of Ohio Courthouse - Cincinnati, Ohio

David Demers, an attorney, sent a letter on behalf of his client to the attorney for James and Patricia Hagy. The letter indicated that the Hagys would not have to pay the balance on their loan and that the lender would not pursue any other remedies against the Hagys. That seemed like good news for the Hagys. Little did Demers know that this epistle would lead to six years (and counting) of litiga... More...   $0 (02-26-2018 - OH)

Patricia Arellano v. Clark County Collection Service, LLC; Borg Law Group, LLC Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Courthouse - San Francisco, California

Can a debt collector avoid liability under the Federal Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act by obtaining the debtor’s
lawsuit through a writ of execution? We conclude that such
a procedure frustrates the Act’s purpose and is thus
preempted.
