Paul Markoff Scores Win for Debtors In Class Action Suit

Recently, our attorney Paul Markoff was chosen to lead a class action suit against Midland Credit Management on behalf of consumers who were misled by a form letter sent by Midland. The lead plaintiff, Renetrice Pierre, argued that the letter did not warn debtors that by agreeing to pay any amount to Midland Credit Management, it would re-open a time-barred debt. Debtors cannot be sued for money owed on a debt that has passed the statute of limitations.
