Unifund CCR LLC v. EQ Bronx Civil Court
One recent case in which the attorneys of Lebedin Kofman LLP prevailed against Unifund CCR was concluded on November 2, 2013. Arthur Lebedin represented a client who had been hit with a default judgment for an amount in excess of $19,000. The client was unable to access his funds, since the default judgment had resulted in his accounts being frozen. Fortunately, Mr. Lebedin succeeded in getting the judgment vacated by working with the plaintiff's attorneys from Mullooly, Jeffrey Rooney & Flynn. This favorable resolution to the case hinged on the fact that we were able to demonstrate that our client had been wrongly sued in the Bronx despite being a resident of the state of Florida.
In 2012, Unifund CCR Partners lost a federal lawsuit filed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The plaintiff alleged that Unifund CCR had failed to verify a debt after sending an initial collection letter, in addition to referring the debt to credit reporting agencies without also mentioning that the plaintiff had disputed the debt.
