Aikens v. Mortgage Default Services, LLC, No. 2:17-cv-01519-RSL, ECF No. 47 (W.D. Wash. Sept. 7, 2018)
If Mortgage Default Services, LLC attempted to collect a debt from you between October 10, 2016 and October 10, 2017, you may benefit from the settlement of this class action lawsuit.
This case is titled Delia Aikens v. Mortgage Default Services, LLC, Case No. 2:17-cv-01519-RSL.
A consumer sued Mortgage Default Services, LLC (“MDS” or “Defendant”) alleging that the company failed to provide certain disclosures when attempting to collect debts, in violation of federal law.
A settlement will provide $5,051.22 (the “Fund”) in statutory damages to fully settle and release claims of Washington and California consumers from whom MDS, between October 10, 2016 and October 10, 2017, attempted to collect consumer debts.
While two other defendants (Panatte, LLC and Land Home Financial Services, Inc.) also were named in the lawsuit identified above, those defendants are not a part of this settlement.
The Fund created by MDS will be used to pay pro-rata settlement awards to all class members who do not exclude themselves. MDS separately will pay statutory damages to the named plaintiff, class counsel’s attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses, as well as the costs of notice and administration of the settlement.
The Court granted final approval to the settlement in February 2019.
