Case Conclusion Date: 04.28.2013
Practice Area: Litigation
Outcome: Treble Damages Awarded Pursuant to California Civil Code § 3345
Description: The evidence in this case demonstrated that CFS knew or should have known that its unfair debt collection practices were directed to a vulnerable senior citizen. Accordingly, in order to "punish and deter" CFS, the Court found it appropriate to treble its award such that CFS was required to pay our client (Johnson) $5,100.00 in statutory damages. Johnson v. CFS II, Inc., 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 61017 (N.D. Cal. Apr. 28, 2013).
