Since the 11th Circuit ruling in Hunstein v. Preferred in April 2021, consumer attorneys filed hundreds of “copycat” lawsuits against debt collectors in Courts across the country, asserting that the use of a letter vendor by a debt collector somehow violates the FDCPA.  While the 11th Circuit will hear arguments on standing in the case later this year, debt collectors need a robust strategy now to minimize the business disruption caused by these Hunstein cases with the ultimate goal of obtaining summary judgment dismissing the claims.  

In this episode of the Debt Collection Drill videocast, Moss & Barnett attorneys John Rossman and Mike Poncin discuss the best strategies for defeating Hunstein lawsuits and also considerations regarding insurance coverage and choice of counsel.
