From the Florida Senate website, here is the pre-2010 version:
The 2009 Florida Statutes
Chapter 559
559.715 Assignment of consumer debts.--This part does not prohibit the assignment, by a creditor, of the right to bill and collect a consumer debt. However, the assignee must give the debtor written notice of such assignment within 30 days after the assignment. The assignee is a real party in interest and may bring an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to collect a debt that has been assigned to such assignee and is in default.

History.--s. 1, ch. 89-69; ss. 6, 13, ch. 93-275.
