  • Attorneys’ fees. We will discuss recent decisions and the importance of those decisions regarding offers of judgment and their impact on the collection of attorneys’ fees, which is a driving force in FDCPA litigation.
  • The interplay between TILA, FDCPA, and CFPB. We will discuss the competing and sometimes contradictory statutes and regulation facing debt collectors, and how courts resolve related issues.
  • Statute of Limitations. We will discuss the conflicting decisions from the 3rd, 4th, and 9th Circuits regarding the FDCPA statute of limitations.
  • Spokeo. We will discuss how courts are interpreting Spokeo and related decisions in the context of FDCPA actions, many of which often do not have obvious injury-in-fact.
  • The devil is in the details. We will discuss numerous recent decisions that hinge on small details in debt collection communications and the importance of getting those details correct.
