National Collegiate Student Loan Trust (NCSLT) cases continue despite the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) getting involved by issuing a consent order barring NCSLT and their collection company, Transworld Systems Inc, from suing on unverified debts. Defending consumers in these cases can be both frustrating and rewarding. Often, consumers are sued for tens of thousands of dollars, and successful defense can truly change a consumer’s life, while losses can be difficult.
This webinar will look at the state of NCSLT litigation since the recent CFPB consent order, provide discovery strategies to strengthen cases against NCSLT, and highlight fact patterns that may result in offensive claims. This webinar is geared to beginner and intermediate practitioners who have handled NCSLT cases before and are familiar with the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA).
What You Will Learn
•How the recent CFPB consent order has impacted NCSLT litigation
•How to use discovery requests, deposition notices, and other discovery tools to put pressure on NCSLT and to discover holes in the documents and proof of an NCSLT case.
•How to spot potential FDCPA claims against NCSLT lawyers and their debt collectors
John William Nelson practices in Georgia. He is the current chair of the Consumer Law Section of the Georgia bar and currently focuses his practice in debt defense and FDCPA litigation. He has defended numerous NCSLT cases and brought multiple FDCPA lawsuits against NCSLT's lawyers and debt collectors.
Praise for the Webinar
"This was very timely for me. I have defended several NCLST cases in the past few years, and they always just dismissed the suit as soon as I made my appearance, but now there are a couple of pending cases that look like they might go to trial, so I'm glad this came along when it did."
