JUDGE RULES SERVICE OF LAWSUIT ENOUGH TO INSTANTLY REVOKE CONSENT UNDER TCPA

  • There appears to be a new way for an individual to revoke consent to be contacted under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act: filing a lawsuit against a collection agency. According to Eric Troutman, a partner at the law firm of Dorsey & Whitney, this appears to be the first time that a judge has ruled that filing a lawsuit “operates to revoke consent as a matter of law.” In fact, Troutman, noted, a federal judge in California has granted partial summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit based on this very ruling.

 

EXPERT: HEALTHCARE BILLING IS BROKEN

  • The healthcare system is so broken that individuals simply wait for a letter from a collection agency and that tells them what needs to be paid when it comes to their medical bills. The process is so confusing that people are not 100% sure of what they owe until they get a letter from a collection agency, said David Krause, Vice President of the Business Improvement Group at Anthem, according to a published report.

TCN MOVES TO NEW HEADQUARTERS

  • TCN has announced that it has moved its corporate headquarters to St. George, Utah. The new office includes 12,000 square feet of office space, and provides “more room to accommodate TCN’s future growth,” the company said in a press release announcing the move.
