Fein, Such, Kahn & Shepard, P.C. v. Allen

This case presents the question whether communications from debt collectors to consumers’ attorneys are categorically excluded from the coverage of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which in relevant part prohibits debt collectors from engaging in “[t]he collection of any amount . . . unless such amount is expressly authorized by the agreement creating the debt or permitted by law.” 15 U.S.C. 1692f(1).
