Lawsuit against Washington Collection Agency for Choice of Venue

January 25th, 2016

In July 2015, Williamson & Williams and co-counsel filed a Class Action Complaint for Damages and Injunctive Relief against a Washington collection agency, alleging that the collection agency violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by filing debt collection lawsuits in King County District Court venues where debtor defendants neither lived nor signed the contracts on which they were being sued.  Plaintiffs and potential class representatives seek an injunction preventing the debt collector from filing collection actions in district court venues where the debtor does not reside, or where the contract at issue was not signed, as well as an award of damages for each plaintiff and class member.
