CFPB FILES FIRST AMICUS BRIEF UNDER MULVANEY, WADES INTO APPEALS COURT CASE ON EMAILED VALIDATION NOTICE

  • It appears as thought it took a debt collection case to get the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection to stand up and file its first amicus brief since Mick Mulvaney took over the agency. The CFPB waded in and filed a brief in support of a plaintiff who is suing a collection agency for allegedly violating the FDCPA because she was sent a validation notice via email instead of via traditional mail. The brief was filed with the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and will pit the bureau against ACA International, which filed an amicus brief two months ago on behalf of the plaintiff.
