Case Conclusion Date:December 9, 2009
Practice Area:Debt Collection
Outcome:Fdcpa case- Won reversal of unfavorable district court decision
Description:District court found that there was not a claim under the Georgia Fair Business Practices Act because there was no evidence presented that the collector's act could harm the general public. We appealed and the 11th circuit reversed also holding that a violation of the FDCPA is a per se violation of the GFBPA.
