Macy v. GC Services Limited Partnership, 2019 WL 6684522 (W.D. Ky. Dec. 6, 2019)
A consumer sued GC Services Limited Partnership (“GC” 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 $10.00 to each of the 8,902 class members who does not exclude himself or herself from the settlement. GC 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 class is defined as: (1) All persons with a Kentucky or Nevada address, (2) to whom GC Services Limited Partnership mailed an initial communication that stated: (a) “if you do dispute all or any portion of this debt within 30 days of receiving this letter, we will obtain verification of the debt from our client and send it to you,” and/or (b) “if within 30 days of receiving this letter you request the name and address of the original creditor, we will provide it to you in the event it differs from our client,” (3) between November 5, 2014 and November 5, 2015, (4) in connection with the collection of a consumer debt, (5) that was not returned as undeliverable to GC Services Limited Partnership.
The Court held a final fairness hearing on April 10, 2020, and approved the settlement on May 28, 2020.
