Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

DC team wins defense jury verdict in FDCPA action
In May of 2011, John Tremain May and Padraic Keane of Jordan Coyne & Savits, L.L.P. successfully defended a law firm in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in a lawsuit alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA"). The plaintiff alleged that the defendant law firm, in the course of foreclosing on the plaintiff's property, had failed to provide the plaintiff with notices required under the FDCPA, and had failed to respond to alleged facsimiles and telephone calls from the plaintiff to the defendant in an effort to challenge the foreclosure. After a three-day trial before the Honorable James Gwin, specially assigned from the Northern District of Ohio, the jury found in favor of the defendant. As always, matters are decided on their own particular facts or merits, and, because each case is different and litigation is inherently unpredictable, the past record is no assurance of reaching a favorable result in any future case.

For more information, please contact John Tremain May at (202) 296-4747.
