“Beyond Bona Fide Error: Emerging FDCPA Defenses,” ACA International Convention, Las Vegas, July 29, 2021
Rachel Friedman will speak on a panel on the topic of emerging defenses under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at ACA International’s July 2021 Convention & Expo. The panel will explore recent trends in defenses to FDCPA claims, how courts across the country have welcomed or rejected various defenses, and how to best position your case for an FDCPA victory. We will focus on defenses aside from the fact specific and procedures-driven bona fide error defense, and instead highlight other lesser known or often overlooked backdoor avenues for defeating FDCPA claims, including standing post-Spokeo, materiality, arbitration, Rooker-Feldman doctrine, and more.
