Campuzano-Burgos v. Midland Credit Management, Inc.,

550 F.3d 294 (3d Cir. 2008)

Case type: Unfair Debt Collection - FDCPA Class Action

This case resulted in a precedential opinion by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia, in a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) case which challenged the misrepresentation of lawyer involvement in collection duns. The court felt the consumer would be misled by collection duns coming from a corporate officer who had no involvement.
