Jerome Byrd v. ProVest, LLC, et al., United States District Court, S.D. Ohio, Western DIvision (Case No. 1:09-cv-076)
Successfully defended ProVest in a putative class action against claims for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA"). The district court granted ProVest's motion for summary judgment on all claims, (1) holding the plaintiffs' claims were time-barred, (2) ProVest is not subject to the FDCPA because it is not a "debt collector", and (3) even if ProVest was subject to the FDCPA, the posted notice did not violate the FDCPA. The district court's decision granting ProVest's motion for summary judgment is available at 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 20636.
