Cornette vs. I.C. System (Southern District, Florida – November 30, 2017) – Case No. 16-cv-24454.
Plaintiff, through attorney James Kauffman, filed a FDCPA class action against our client claiming it unlawfully added a collection fee to a debt it was attempting to collect on behalf of its client. We filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing our client had a right to rely on the creditor to determine the legality of the collection fee. Judge Cooke agreed, stating: “ICS is entitled to rely on the representations of its clients with respect to consumer debts without the need to conduct a pre-collection investigation.”
