Judge Issues Order Denying Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss in CFPB v. Hanna Debt Collection Litigation

As insideARM reported last month, oral arguments on the Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss the Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus (CFPB) action against the Georgia collection law firm Frederick J Hanna & Associates P.C. were held on June 3rd in Atlanta.

On May 8, 2015 we posted an article which provided the procedural history of the case.

Briefly, in the initial Complaint the CFPB alleged that the Hanna law firm filed large numbers of lawsuits without “significant attorney involvement” and as a result violated section 807(3) of the FDPCA by falsely representing or implying that the communication was from an attorney and violated the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA) for the same reasons.
