Alan Hochheiser, Donald Maurice to Speak on FDCPA Regulation of Bankruptcy in ABA Webinar Today

May 31, 2017 — Maurice Wutscher’s Alan C. Hochheiser and Donald Maurice will be among a panel of speakers presenting an ABA webinar today at noon, “A Look at FDCPA Regulation of Bankruptcy Practices after Midland Funding LLC v. Johnson.”

A recent Supreme Court decision found the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was not violated by a debt collector’s filing of a proof of claim for a debt subject to an expired limitations period. But the decision did not find that the FDCPA is precluded by the Bankruptcy Code.

The webinar will explore the decision and examine whether FDCPA risks still remain for bankruptcy practices. Panelists will discuss what may occur with existing cases that were stayed and what to look for moving forward.

The webinar is being presented by the ABA Business Law Section’s Consumer Bankruptcy Committee. For more information, click here.
