Description

David Overstreet recently prevailed on a Motion to Dismiss in a malpractice case filed against a lowcountry attorney over a debt collection matter in federal court. Plaintiffs filed an action for Violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), Fraud, and Negligent Misrepresentation, alleging that the attorney had harassed the Plaintiffs in collecting an improper debt. The Court held that the FDCPA claim failed as a matter of law and also dismissed the remaining causes of action.
