The deposition of a debt collector is critical to an FDCPA case. It is difficult, if not impossible, to survive summary judgment without it, as most debt collectors refuse to provide any meaningful discovery otherwise. They also typically hide behind frivolous affirmative defenses and ludicrous denials of obvious truths. At best, they just plead ignorance to everything. Testimony, under oath, by their corporate representative can be an excellent way to identify the difference between a shotgun defense/denial and one that requires more work to overcome.

If you are litigating FCRA cases involving the Big Three nationwide CRAs (Equifax/Experian/TransUnion) or furnishers to those CRAs, you need to understand the Metro 2 Reporting format. This is standardized format that furnishers use to report data to the Big Three. This webinar will provide an overview of the format for FCRA practitioners at the Intermediate level.
While more than 20 million U.S. jobs were wiped out in April 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown, the unemployment rate has begun to fall in recent months as the economy begins to reopen. This means millions of Americans will be applying for jobs and undergoing employment background checks. Employment and tenant screening CRAs routinely mismatch people, omit crucial information about a case, provide misleading information, and misclassify offenses when preparing consumer reports in the form of employment and tenant screening background checks.
If you are suing debt buyers under the FDCPA, you need to understand the recent Circuit Court of Appeals decisions on whether these entities are debt collectors. Debt buyers are pushing the “passive” debt buyer argument through our courts to further restrict the FDCPA’s application and chip away at its already limited coverage. This webinar will prepare you for facing the “passive” debt buyer issue in your FDCPA cases involving debt buyers. This webinar is geared to intermediate practitioners.
