We recently filed suit on behalf of a Jefferson County resident who was sued by the debt buyer firm of Harvest Credit Management on a debt he did not owe. We successfully defended the consumer and then filed a federal lawsuit against the debt buyer Harvest Credit Management.
As is all too common in Alabama, debt buyers file suit against people who do not owe the money. Our client demanded that the lawsuit be dismissed with prejudice so he would not be sued again and the response was “see you at trial”. Our client went to court and the case resulted in a judgment in his favor.
We filed suit alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and state law including malicious prosecution and abuse of process.
