Greenwald Davidson Radbil PLLC is pleased to have obtained a $5,000 cy pres award for Idaho Legal Aid Services in connection with a class action settlement in the United States District Court for the District of Idaho. As part of the settlement in Lambeth v. Advanatge Financial Services, LLC, the Court entered an injunction requiring the defendant to comply with sections 1692d(6) and 1692e(11) of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) with regard to debt collection phone calls made to Idaho consumers, and to designate one or more officers to ensure the company complies with the injunction. The case centered on the defendant's alleged violations of the FDCPA by making debt collection phone calls to consumers where the defendant failed to disclose that it was a debt collector calling to collect a debt.
In addition to the injunction, the settlement required Advantage to make a cy pres payment to Idaho Legal Aid Services in the amount of $5,000.00.
The Court granted final approval of the settlement on August 3, 2015.
