Carrasquillo v. CICA Collection Agency

The Bureau filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit arguing that the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act’s prohibition on false, deceptive, or misleading representations is not limited to intentional or knowing misrepresentations and that the Bankruptcy Code does not bar FDCPA claims based on bankruptcy-related misrepresentations.

Rotkiske v. Klemm

The Solicitor General and the Bureau filed a brief in the Supreme Court in Rotkiske v. Klemm, arguing that the one-year statute of limitations that applies to private actions under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act begins to run when the violation occurs, not when the plaintiff discovers or should discover the alleged violation.

Bender v. Elmore & Throop, P.C.

The Bureau filed an amicus brief addressing the one-year statute of limitations in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The brief argued that the FDCPA’s statute of limitations does not bar consumers from suing to challenge violations that occurred in the prior year, even if the defendant previously committed similar violations that are outside the limitations period.
