Notable Appellate Decisions

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed the district court’s findings that a debt collector violated several provisions of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, that the debt collector was unable to take advantage of the bona fide error defense to the consumer’s claims, and that the consumer was entitled to the maximum statutory damage award available. Ponce v. BCA Fin. Services, Inc., 467 F. App’x 806, 809 (11th Cir. 2012).

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit endorsed a broad interpretation of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in finding that a “debt,” as statutorily defined, is created where an obligation to pay arises from a transaction, even absent an extension of credit. Barry Oppenheim v. I.C. System, Inc., 627 F. 3d 833 (11th Cir. 2010).
