JUDGE DISMISSES TWO HUNSTEIN CASES FOR LACK OF STANDING
- A District Court judge in New York has dismissed two cases — one of them a class action — that alleged the defendants violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by sending private information to a third-party vendor to print and mail collection letters that were received by the plaintiffs, ruling that the information that was transmitted in these cases — names and addresses — was not private and therefore the plaintiffs do not have standing to pursue their cases in federal court.

Cordray would replace Randal Quarles, whose term as Vice Chairman of Banking Supervision at the Fed ended last month.
