Brockman v. Mankin Law Group, P.A., 2020 WL 6106890 (M.D. Fla. Oct. 14, 2020)
If Mankin Law Group, P.A. attempted to collect a debt from you between April 17, 2019 and April 23, 2020, you may benefit from the settlement of this class action lawsuit.
This case is titled Tamberly T. Brockman v. Mankin Law Group, P.A., Case No. 8:20-cv-00893 (M.D. Fla.).
A consumer sued Mankin Law Group, P.A. (“Defendant”) alleging that the company failed to properly provide certain disclosures when attempting to collect debts, in violation of federal law.
A settlement will provide $24,000 (the “Fund”) in statutory damages to fully settle and release claims of all consumers from whom Defendant, between April 17, 2019 and April 23, 2020, attempted to collect consumer debts. If you qualify for this Fund, you will receive a notice in the mail explaining your rights and providing a detachable claim form to return. Class members have until December 14, 2020 to submit their claims to take part in this Fund.
The Fund created by Defendant will be used to pay pro-rata settlement awards to those class members who submit claims. Based on historical claims rates, it is anticipated that each participating class member will receive between $30 and $60. Defendant separately will pay statutory damages and an incentive award 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 preliminary approval to the settlement in October 2020 and will hold its final fairness hearing on March 9, 2021. Class members are NOT required to attend this hearing.
