Amicus Curiae Brief for Berman v. NYC
The West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act Provides Consumers with a cause of actuin against any person violating prohibited debt collection practices. Any ambiguity in the remedies provisions must be resolved in favor of providing consumers with a cause of action.
Liberty Tax Service violated the UCL and the FDCPA by misleading consumers into signing agreements with hidden provisions purporting to allow the cross-collection of debts.
Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a debt collector may avoid liability by showing beyond a preponderance of the evidence that its violation of the Act “was not intentional and resulted from a bona fide error notwithstanding the maintenance of procedures reasonably adapted to avoid any such error.” 5 U.S.C. § 1692k(c). Does this defense extend to a debt collector’s
ignorance of the law?
