Jones, Wolf & Kapasi, LLC (“JWK”) defeated a motion to dismiss brought by Medicredit, Inc. in the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey, Mercer County as well as a corresponding motion for interlocutory appeal in New Jersey’s state appellate court. Accordingly, JWK’s client’s 15 U.S.C. 1692 et seq,. the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) claims against Medicredit will go forward.
The client’s FDCPA case involves Medicredit sending New Jersey consumers letters or notices in an attempt to collect a debt by improperly including a service charge on returned checks, and wrongly indicating that the consumer had a legal responsibility to call and/or provide certain insurance information to Medicredit.
JWK attorneys Joseph K. Jones and Benjamin J. Wolf are prosecuting the client’s FDCPA case entitled: Edith Foley et al. v Medicredit, Inc.
