6th Circuit Reinstates Debt Collection Suit: Plaintiff ‘Can Hang Her Hat on’ Attorney’s Alleged FDCPA Violation | Law.com

A federal district court in Louisville, Kentucky, erred in dismissing a woman’s suit against an attorney for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit determined this month.

Zahra Bouye sued attorney James Bruce for violating the FDCPA in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky in March 2020 and alleged that Bruce doctored a retail installment contract mid-litigation to make it like look a debt assignment from Winner Furniture to Mariner Finance was proper, the opinion said.
