Rebekka S. Wordes v. Gate City Bank

Case Number: 0:23-cv-01203

Judge: Katherine M. Menendez

Court: United States District Court for the District of Minnesota (Hennepin County)

Plaintiff's Attorney: Carter Lyons and Tom Lyons

Defendant's Attorney: Brad Bultman

Description: Minneapolis, Minnesota consumer law lawyers represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a Electronic Funds Transfer Act violation theory.

The claims made and defenses asserted by the parties are not available.

15 U.S.C. 1693, et seq. provide:

(a) Abusive practices

There is abundant evidence of the use of abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors. Abusive debt collection practices contribute to the number of personal bankruptcies, to marital instability, to the loss of jobs, and to invasions of individual privacy.

(b) Inadequacy of laws

Existing laws and procedures for redressing these injuries are inadequate to protect consumers.

(c) Available non-abusive collection methods

Means other than misrepresentation or other abusive debt collection practices are available for the effective collection of debts.

(d) Interstate commerce

Abusive debt collection practices are carried on to a substantial extent in interstate commerce and through means and instrumentalities of such commerce. Even where abusive debt collection practices are purely intrastate in character, they nevertheless directly affect interstate commerce.

(e) Purposes

It is the purpose of this subchapter to eliminate abusive debt collection practices by debt collectors, to insure that those debt collectors who refrain from using abusive debt collection practices are not competitively disadvantaged, and to promote consistent State action to protect consumers against debt collection abuses.
