Location: Renaissance Washington, D.C.
In recent years, litigation brought by the National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts (NCSLT) has become an epidemic. Defending these cases can be fun and rewarding. Often, consumers are faced with a lawsuit for tens of thousands of dollars on a loan they barely remember, from a trust they have never heard from. The deficiencies in the collectors’ proof have been well documented.
The FDCPA has come under an onslaught of resistance. Besides many companies cleaning up their collection calls, Spokeo and other creative defenses have hampered the effectiveness of consumer lawyers assisting debtor-clients. One statute that is often overlooked as a means for providing some protections to consumers is the Electronic Funds Transfers Act (EFTA).
Discovery in FCRA litigation is complex and compounded by defense counsel that feign ignorance and systematically work to maintain a veil of secrecy over their clients’ credit reporting activities. This seminar is intended to lift that veil by discussing common defense tactics aimed at frustrating your ability to conduct discovery as well as providing an overview of evidence essential to building your case.
