Baldwin v. Glasser & Glasser, P.L.C., 2015 WL 7769207 (E.D. Va. Dec. 1, 2015)
The parties have reached a settlement of this action in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The settlement provides for a common fund from which participating class members will receive a pro-rata share.
This case stems from alleged violations by Glasser and Glasser, P.L.C. (“Defendant”) of section 15 U.S.C. 1692g(a)(4) of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”), with regard to initial debt collection letters sent to Virginia and Maryland consumers on behalf of Bank of America, N.A. Lead Plaintiff Edith Baldwin alleged that Defendant violated the FDCPA by failing to include proper disclosures in these initial debt collection letters.
The Settlement Class is defined as:
All persons with a Virginia or Maryland address to whom Glasser and Glasser, P.L.C. mailed an initial debt collection communication that stated: “If you notify this firm within thirty (30) days after your receipt of this letter that the debt, or any portion thereof, is disputed, we will obtain verification of the debt or a copy of the judgment, if any, and mail a copy of such verification or judgment to you,” between August 19, 2014 and August 19, 2015, in connection with the collection of a consumer debt on behalf of Bank of America, N.A.
The Court granted final approval to the settlement on March 24, 2016.
