FDCPA Attorney St. Louis, Missouri – Crawford v. LVNV Funding Confirms that Debt Collectors May Be Liable for Bankruptcy Misconduct

In July of 2014, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed, in Crawford v. LVNV Funding, that a debt collector can be liable under the FDCPA for misconduct in connection with a consumer’s bankruptcy.  In the Crawford case, LVNV Funding submitted a “proof of claim” on a debt that was time barred.  The Court held that this behavior was actionable.  The full opinion is available for free at http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca11/13-12389/13-12389-2014-07-10.html
