Collections-federal court says collections claim governed by R.I. statute of limitations

| Feb 24, 2013 | Firm News

The federal district court of Rhode Island has dismissed Fair Debt Collection Practices Act claims against a law firm holding that the Rhode Island 10 year statute of limitations applied to debt claims filed in Rhode Island under an “interest-weighting” approach.  The court allowed claims against a debt collection for failing to register as a debt collector under a Rhode Island statute.  Fiorenza v. LVNV Funding, 2012 WL 2562415 (D.R.I. June 29, 2012).  /Practice-Areas/Collections-for-Creditors.shtml
