Daily Digest – May 9. Judge Rules Debt Not for Personal Use in FDCPA Case; Consumers Still in Good Position to Pay Debts: Encore CEO

JUDGE RULES DEBT NOT FOR PERSONAL USE IN FDCPA CASE

  • I don’t know about you, but with all the times that I have purchased real estate — one, to be exact — I remembered whether I was at the closing or whether I had someone attend for me, and whether I inspected the property or whether I bought it sight unseen. The inability for a plaintiff to recall such important details cost him a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act case when a District Court judge in Florida ruled in favor of the defendant following a bench trial that was held last week. Ultimately, the plaintiff’s changing recollections kept the judge from determining whether the debt in question was for personal, household, or family purposes, required to meet the definition of “debt” under the FDCPA.
