Lesher v. Law Offices Of Mitchell N. Kay, PC,

650 F.3d 993 (3d Cir. 2011)

Case type: FDCPA violation

Flitter Milz was engaged to argue the appeal of a decision against a New York debt collector. Where only three lawyers send out tens of thousands of collection letters without any real review or involvement, the Court of Appeals agreed that this violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act requirement that a lawyer have “Meaningful Involvement” in sending collection correspondence on law firm letterhead.
